Whether I deserve it or not, society has given me a certain status because of who I am. I say this not to laud my position in the world- far from it- but in order to recognise that others face different obstacles, challenges, and pitfalls that I might do. I also say this because I realise that all those things that have given me status in the world are things which we should no longer pay heed to- the inherent and explicit racism, sexism, ageism, and other isms that place one person over the other. These isms are wrong. Each person should be judged on their gifts and abilities, and not on our perceived perspectives of what they think they might be like. But until that day finally happens, when we can put all the isms aside, we must recognise those times when society has given us status that we have not earned. Blessings.
