Somewhere inside all of us… says Roald Dahl.
Somewhere in all of us humans is the power to change how we perceive, how we act and most importantly how we accept. In the last few days we’ve watched in horror as unbidden, horrendous attacks on innocent lives have unfolded – Orlando, Istanbul and now Dhaka. A life of a parent, a partner, a brother, or a sister, a child, eastern lives, western lives, it matters not. We are life. Religion in general shouldn’t incite heinous acts. No religion that I am aware of asks for human sacrifice.
We love ardently, we live without fear, we celebrate how we look, how we spell our names, how we sparkle with different colors. Somewhere inside all of us, this is possible.
This post is in honor of all those who have lost their lives, and in honor of the wonderfully whimsical and wise Roald Dahl & BFG, a most beloved author and book in my family.
