But what happens when you find yourself in a culture that thrives on the fear of others?
One of your best yet. I enjoy everything you write, when I take the time to read , but this is one of the best!
People don’t stop to think of what they are saying when they ask these things. They never question and just accept and that, I cannot understand.
Oh, Sarah. I completely relate to this( minus the kids part) . I run into frustration so often when I express my travel dreams and people who have not been to the places I have ( like Argentina) express what I think are ignorant beliefs, like why would you go there? Particularly pertaining to the South American continent .
And while I understand their fears, particularly because most South American countries are young democracies, those fears are rooted in the past, and festering they keep us as a world separated from one another.
A bit of common sense and education go a long way in the face of fear, but people seem to be lacking both nowadays.
Watching fear drive us apart simply breaks my heart.
Kudos to Big Bend and being more mindful of how we are overly fearful when we don't need to be. Your post resonated with me at a time when I really needed it. Thank you.
So many people need to hear this message.
Great post Sarah, I found myself nodding to so much of what you wrote. Keep up the great work in your corner of the world and write on!
Let's keep spreading the message of hope.
Fear as an acronym could have two meanings. It could mean "F everything and run," but we learn it to mean "Face everything and rise."
As a Canadian I often have a hard time understanding American life, but the honesty and heart in this piece was so powerful. Thank you for this
🙌 So much said, and so beautifully explored. A ‘wow’ post!
