My World is Too Small

There are things that are happening in our world that we can’t even begin to imagine, much less understand. An example of this is the protests in Hong Kong that I’ve been spending more and more time learning about and understanding.

And, apparently, you can now be “punished” by speaking up about what’s happening, even here in the US! Even writing this blog post puts me in the “line of fire” for some folks.

My world is too small — I need it to get bigger.
