When we choose to live life never walking in another's shoes then we have chosen to live life with our eyes closed. The saddest part of this is our choice in the matter. When we build walls and act on anger, fear and hatred, we are walking through life with our eyes closed. But we have the option to open them. To understand that we are not measured by our convictions but by our actions. That there will be no forgiveness for vitriolic or hateful behavior no matter if its roots are in misguided fear and good intentions. We have control to open our eyes. To walk in another's shoes and empathize, understanding that the human in me is the human in you. It is time to take the responsibility and walk with our eyes open no matter how painful, so that we may leave the world a better place then when we entered it.
Hi, I'm Liz. I like to write about life and the wisdom I cull from it. I use words and images to inspire empathy and connection with each other and the world.
