Can you walk comfortably into a room
in which the only theme is diversity?
In which there is no agreement of politics,
religion, sexual orientation?
Can you carry on a conversation
in which the only theme is tolerance?
In which there is no judgment of parenting skills,
pastimes, choice of literature?
Can you empathize with others
when the only theme is anger?
In which there is no condemnation of dissidence,
frustration, blind rage?
