I became quiet about the world.

At first I spoke up. I was told that there would be a rising up against people like me.

And they did.

I realized that we are not born as equals because we are not alike. Every brain is wired differently. Our chemicals are mixed differently. Our soul journeys and agreements are unique and even a mystery, even to ourselves.

Caring about each other does not come naturally. I had hoped it was part of what being human was all about.

I had hoped. Even believed. That teachers, parents, service persons and politicians cared about all people. No matter that.

I became quiet about the world.

I was wrong about you.
