In order to be the change we wish to see in this world, we must first recognize that with which we are faced. We must first recognize the injustice, the hate and the violence, and step out of our comfort zone to see it. By creating perspective in our every day lives, we become one step closer to creating the world we are comfortable living in, and comfortable dying in. Even a subtle shift of perspective can open the mind to countless new opportunities, cultures, and gateways to happiness.
