Some people have hard opinions and beliefs about sexual identity, race, religion, drugs, prison, women’s rights, the death penalty, pandemics, and guns…
… on which they won’t budge, until,
their son comes out as transgender, or
their new neighbor is black or hispanic or asian or jewish or muslim or catholic or christian or atheist, or
their partner suffers an addiction, or
their relative goes to prison, or
their daughter says she’s pregnant, or
they must vote yes or no on the death penalty, or
a grandparent dies of the hoax virus without a “goodbye,” or
they witness their spouse being shot dead in a grocery store…
… for no reason!
Then as if in a miracle, enlightenment and change can happen in an instant, opening their heart and mind to truth, empathy, and common sense, freeing them to let go of those long-held hard opinions so they can support change for the greater good.
