Do you really see or you think you do?
Do you notice or just pass by?
How is it possible for you to live with an elephant in the same room but not be aware of it? Moving almost like an acrobat trying not to poke on something you can’t even see.
In the meantime, the elephant grows bigger. And as it gets bigger, you get smaller. You are not able to fit in the room anymore because it takes away your space and oxygen. Your denial to see it, feeds and increases it. But you keep your eyes shut remaining trapped in the darkness.
The elephant has several names: Racism, Sex trafficking, Child Labor, Fake News, Depression, Body Shaming…But you pretend to not know any of them. Until when will your intentional ignorance give you alibi for your inaction?
It definitely takes courage to admit the reality. To put your and society’s problems under the revealing light of truth. Does the realization travel to the speed of light? When you admit and recognize the problem, you make the first step towards the solution.
