What is the sameness in you that refuses to acknowledge a practical difference in me? Are your positions not robust enough to sustain themselves in a world where my kind of difference exists?
It is clear that I was not raised in your town and it is clear that you were not raised in mine, but is it clear that we should not visit each others dwellings? When if ever, is a fence like a kiss?
Have you ever asked yourself how your difference was created in the first place – did not a stranger bring news to your town – new revelations? How is it that the message of change that the stranger brought is itself unchangeable?
When you make your wish up for humanity, is it for all of our differences to be reduced to a simple solitary understanding? Or can you exist with the complexities of my difference without resorting to emotional or physical violence.
What good and what bad results have your certainties created in your own heart? Will you be more or less able to understand a new stranger should one come? Will there be a place for a new learning within the circle of your present adherence?
