NERD LIVES MATTER
I live in view of a school's playground. The other day I saw one child in an absurd, pink snow jacket off to the side in Nerd Land. My heart felt for the little nerd and all the nerdness + injustice + un-love I ever felt in my own life. Realized we all carry our own nerds in ourselves whether we are a superstar celebrity, a striver, a cop, a teen, a lone wolf, a refugee, a rapist, oh my...even a terrorist.
What the world needs is LOVE. Our love. We all are the NERD.
Within all the painful ways we seeing and expressing our shared humanity, fears, bravery, sameness, and rights to justice right now in the world...I hear the voice of the unloved, "the meek" and the nerd speaking loud and clear. #whattheworldneedsisLOVE #allweneedisLOVE #practicingcompassion #everynerdisastarintraining
This piece can be inspiring for children and adults. The ability to see the "other" as one's sister or brother is always a stepping stone to more LOVE, more humanity.
