There are many things I love about South Africa and a big one is the drive for change. Step by step. It is not about big steps but all about impact. About attempts to change the past into a better future.
And let’s be honest, South Africa has an intense history. Today we talked about the racism that is still a thing, and the unawareness of it. The blind spots in our behavior because our way is the way we know, we learned and often the way we believe is true. We spoke about the importance of communication and dialogue, to ask for the why of another human being. And how difficult and uncomfortable it sometimes is to admit that you are judging from your point of reference, to admit that there might be more truths than yours.
Today for me was also about acknowledging the importance of daring to challenge yourself and the people around you to ask questions instead of thinking for one another!
