Episode 11: Old Memories and New Thoughts About Independence Day
Episode 11. Reflecting on Independence Day as a white girl from a small town in Oklahoma, I find myself considering the complexities of experiences, not shared with others. How can we learn from one another if we are not in spaces to share experiences? If we live our lives in bubbles of the same, this is all we know, the same. When all we know is similar to ourselves, a simple meeting with the “other” innately festers fear and mistrust. I know pain. I know grief. I know tragedy. Perhaps this is the reason my eyes are less blind to what happens around me. Maybe my broken heart aches more than I realize.
No one person or organization has all the answers. Therefore, we must work together to shine a light on peace.
