Mad busy day answering interviews and writing emails and doing chores. Here’s an excerpt from one interview just completed!.
I’ve always seen the human being before the labels we are so often taught to adhere to one another and I’ve always been aware of the chapters of back story that lead to a defining moment.
We live in times of fast food truths, delivered in bite sized portions, using all the tricks of advertising, we exist in a time of being sold versions of the truth with the singular goal of swaying, shaping opinion, rather than bringing us closer, honing our empathy, it’s often used to divide us, fracture us, cutting prejudice into us.
My only hope for these stories is that in some way, they unite us, bring us back to a time where we took the time to not become a panel of judges, for life is not about being a self appointed judge, making snap decisions based upon a very thin experience.
Life is not fucking Pop Idol or X Factor and the result of being swayed by such divisive presentation of fact via the mass media is less tolerance for many who need only to be understood and embraced, the stories are about building communities, not tearing them down.”
