At this point, we all have a lot of questions. We have all heard conflicting stories. Fear may keep someone in a strident mask-bound stance, but even they cannot help but have doubts.
And that’s as it should be.
There has been enough conflicting, dubious information, that you’re not awake if you haven’t noticed. You should have doubts and questions.
Based on a narrative, we have turned our culture on its head. We are reduced to anonymous, hidden entities. We are uncomfortable in what used to be normal spaces for us. We are largely separated from community. The looming agenda for our children’s schools should frighten any thinking parent. Our livelihoods, our food supply are threatened. Trackers are hired, and apps developed for the purpose of knowing even better who we know and where we go. Discourse is censored. Medicine and our control over our own bodies are becoming even further not matters of choice but submission to state decisions.
We are citizens of the earth first. We have every right to question the narrative as well as what government seeks to decree.
We need to look with open minds and compassion at each other as we find our way through this. We need to look at each other with respect instead of being driven apart by fear.
The people who stridently support everything they are told are trying their best to protect themselves, their loved ones, and their communities.
The people who question and resist also have everyone’s best interests at heart — they are no less invested in protecting themselves, their loved ones, and their communities.
This is a time for people to come together – in the midst of our enforced alienation – to find the true answers and discover the truly healthy path we should follow. We must come out of the trenches of fear and move towards love to find the truth.
We must allow the questions. We must be willing to listen and to learn. We must be willing to confront the narrative and to take a loving stand. With no time to spare.
