Fair is when the starting line is the same for everyone. Except that’s not the fair we experience.
Some of us are born with challenges. Others are born in less than ideal circumstances. Many live without enough resources. Even more without access to education or simple things like clean water.
And we can scream this isn’t fair because…it isn’t. They continue to get louder and louder. Making those in power uncomfortable and defensive.
So how do we bend the culture toward fairness? We can start by listening to those suffering instead of thinking about our own struggles.
Everyone has an opinion on where to go from here. Not everyone is able to sit with the tension and listen to those who have had the short end for generations. It’s easy to leave those behind when you don’t even know they exist.
