A quick note to let you guys know that I am saying goodbye to the Facebook page I created for ScatteredNotebooks.com, and here’s why:
Every time, we fail the children. We fail them with arrogance. We fail them with indifference.
I cannot read a persons mind. I cannot know a persons soul. I cannot divine the truth. But I can listen.
Fear of disbelief. Fear of belief and...distance. Fear of action.
Will we brook no abuse or mistreatment, find our voice and speak out where we should? Will we stand up and stick up for each other, and become our own change for the good?
Somehow, the idea lingers that getting punched deserves a punch, it does not. The idea continues that my beliefs must match your beliefs, and it is just not true. The idea persists that a different skin pigment means wrong, it does not.
