Today is always a good day to reflect on how our feelings and actions affect others lives. I think very few people today would argue that segregation is a good thing, but there were millions of Americans who fought against intergration 50 years ago because they believed that is the way it should be. They were wrong then and time proved them wrong. Take this time to reflect on your beliefs. Why do you believe what you believe? Is it out of fear? Out of ignorance? Because that is how your parents taught you? And I am not talking just about race relations, but for men's views of women and vice-versa, sexual orientation, religion, immigration status, wealth, education, and every other reason you may come up with.
