Birthplace: Earth, Race: Human, Politics: Freedom, Religion: Love
Look at the description above….is that you? If not maybe you should reconsider being a human. I hear there are other planets that have space for you. Trust me, I know The Doctor.
All kidding aside, as humans we need the same things. We may desire other things, however our basic human needs are the same. I think we can all agree in the first two attributes, birthplace and race. It is when humans forget those and focus on politics and religion does the air get murky. As humans we like different things. We desire different things. We pursue different creative outlets.
We must learn soul-balance in a vacillating, changing world of differences. We must learn to be fearless. Stand up for humanity. Focus on what makes us human and love each other.
Believe in humanity.

In We Will Get There one of the themes is a very real issue facing Perdido Key even today. The loss of land and change to the horizon. In the book, Krystal fights and wins but in reality the fight was lost years ago.
What we have to remember is that change is inevitable. It is how we react that counts. All we can do is fight when we can and accept the change when we can’t control it.
It breaks my heart to see the monstrous condos line the shore when I top the bridge headed out to Perdido. I have my memories. No one can change that. Home is a place but it is in our hearts as well.
Where is your home? Has it changed in significant ways?
