Two worlds

I needed to go out of the house this evening. My daughter had a basketball game and it was our turn to drive. I saw some parents, of the other kids, that I haven’t seen in over 1,5 years. We live in completely different worlds.

If you follow what is going on in the world, no matter what “side” you are on, you will have noticed two distinct camps of thinking. One of the camps follows the news media, watches TV, and listens to what the government tells them. The other camp doesn’t want to listen, has a problem with authority, and gets most of their information from the internet.

It is very easy to make fun of the people in the other camp, they think so differently, it is impossible to relate. Understanding of each other’s points is nowhere to be seen and animosity, even hatred for each other is brewing. I don’t see how this can end well unless we try to visit each other’s world and try to relate to each other as human beings. Understanding and compassion are what we need at the moment, not competition, or the need to be right.
