We can remove monuments, statues, flags and any other remembrance of history but that will not remove a person’s way of thinking. Thought patterns have been in existence for years, decades and often an entire lifetime due in part to generational social learning.
Change occurs by changing the way we think about ourselves and our circumstances and educating ourselves about the world in which we live. It starts with understanding who we are as people and as individuals. It’s not just about our own history and how we have arrived but how has the world arrived?
Once we understand our own existence we can then begin to look into the world of others around us to understand theirs.
We only know what we know and what we’ve been taught. It’s up to ALL of us to seek the knowledge for which we don’t already possess.
