Daily Prompt: Think Global, Act Local

Standard

“Think global, act local.” Write a post connecting a global issue to a personal one.

Racism, a word that is used around the globe, and one that few of us are willing to admit, lives in our neighborhood.

It’s a touchy subject for most people, because it hits the very cord of what and who we are as human beings.

Once we understand what race is, we have a better understanding of why the word racism exists.

It happens where I live, and it happens where you live. It’s here and unfortunately  not going away. There are many people around the globe who fight for the right to be who they are, the right to have the color of skin they were born with, and the right to support who they choose to.

The way I think about it, racism and discrimination are melded together as one. Together, they are a nuclear bomb waiting to go off.

Act Local, to me, means seeing the little things that get over looked in the global scheme of things. Have more patience with people, listen to their needs, and get involved in ethnic celebrations.

We are all valuable, no matter where we come from or what we look like. What a shame the world is so messed up we have lost sight of that.

There is always hope, because as human beings we have the power to change anything, all we have to do is be more understanding, and that’s really not that scary.
