Live the Justice, Don't Preach It
Social justice can be an easy avenue to travel to judge others. It's an ever evolving notion that has no fixed boundaries other that what we know is true.
How that truth manifests is the challenge and those manifestations are what evolve, not the truth itself.
Patience is the partner of progress. It takes patience with those who are still struggling to come to terms with the truth.
When we show them impatience or intolerance towards their views are we any different than they are; or, do we think we hold the higher ground just because we got there first?
When we do, we share in their arrogance and ignorance.
Live the justice, don't preach it. when we preach it we end up sounding just like those who stand opposed.
At least it's something to think about.
