When we are faced with our own lack of understanding, or pushed to face truths we would rather ignore, our primary reaction is to be defensive and push right back. Or, if we are in a privileged position, to just
deny, ignore, and move on as if everything is fine. When all we need to do is look around and see that everything is not fine. We must keep pushing ourselves to ask “why?” “What is at the root of this
nation’s malcontent?” And then, “How can I contribute to its reformation?”
