Hello dear Ones,
How are you today?
My thoughts this week turned to the world of tomorrow–that we are indeed building today, brick by brick.
After this tragic war in Ukraine, the world might look and feel different, split more than ever between various geopolitical blocks; one being the friends of Russia (be they a country or a group of people) and another being what I would call the WE–the world that includes all of us, regardless of who we are, where we live, how much money we make, what gender or ethnicity we define ourselves with.
In the words of my friend Anne, this would be the “one world.”
“We, the human race, have evolved to being CONSCIOUS that we are one world.”
We are making progress toward this WE-ness all over the world and there are signs sprouting here and there, even within territories where you wouldn’t expect them. Here are two snippets from the New York Times of March 23.
- Utah’s governor vetoed a bill that would bar transgender girls from girls’ sports, the second Republican governor in two days to do so [the other one was Indiana yesterday].
- Dozens of Disney employees walked out after the company avoided taking a public stance on anti-L.G.B.T.Q. legislation in Florida.
Again, this marks a growing concern and more love for human beings, for the We, regardless of who and where these beings could be, and this is a hopeful and hope-filled sign.
Yet, where is this going to take us?
In a world that may seem a little unbalanced, or tilted, at times….
