MY BLOG: Every day for a year.
Day 76. ‘We are all the same’

It’s hard to come to terms with the level of hatred in some people. Watching along with everyone else what has happened in New Zealand, I will never understand what could drive such viciousness. There are politicians in our country that should be deported to another planet. The intolerant and ill-informed rhetoric just stirs the pot to gratify their own warped beliefs. We! Are! All! The! Same!!! The differences in our culture or religion are categorically no reason for a divide. It’s an opportunity to learn, gain experience and make some incredible friends. I have just spent two weeks amongst the Doomadgee aboriginal community. Despite the terrible history white Australia inflicted upon them, they are able to rise above it and just see me for me. I was completely accepted and made welcome. We were just people working on music together. I share with you all the outrage, anger and utter sadness for what has happened. I know the world does not have to be this way, we need to find the kinder road.

Thanks for listening!
Until tomorrow!
