Boxes 19 July 2020

I don’t believe that most people fit into the category’s others place them in. We have our little boxes and we want to put people into them based on one post or one conversation, the clothes we wear, the vehicle we operate, the length of our hair, the color of our skin, the way we say hello or goodbye, or any number of other traits.

I belong in this box or that box, but I belong in a million other boxes too. How did we all get so closed minded? So “write them off?” So downright mean?

Are your beliefs that much more important than seeing me as a person? Are mine? What happened to common curtesy?

Is it because we are so removed from each other? We post on our social media sites and we like, and we don’t like but comment. We repost when we have no idea whether or not what we’re reposting has any basis in fact. It doesn’t matter. If I agree with whatever it is, I pass it on with all of its misinformation.

Part of me wants to find a long mountain trail and stay on it. Instead, I pray. I post more positive than negative. I do my darnedest to love, rather than hate.
