We Are All Connected

When a child is born, it has no concept of the colour it is living in. Youssou N’Dour.


Like a pair of giant needles, technology and globalization have knitted us together, impacting on every aspect of our lives.

Whether we are living in Toronto, Toledo or Timbucto, we’re all living in a global village now, interconnected, interdependent and demanding we broaden our world view.

Broadly speaking, a view world is a set of expectations and biases we have formed that shape how we see and feel about people in other nations – each with their own set of values, customs and mores.

Accommodation isn’t always easy but as distances and time continue to shrink, it is good to remember that most of us, regardless of where we stand on the globe, are just trying to get through the day, striving to stay alive, better our conditions, to do the best by our families and those for whom we care.

We are not the same, pf course. Our cultures, religions, educational backgrounds and societal differences can make strangers of us – but only if we let them.

The songs we sing, the stories we tell, sounds and words that to others can sound foreign, even threatening. Still, as the world gets smaller, we need to make the effort to narrow the gap, remembering that a stranger is only a person whose story or song we have never heard – until we are willing to listen.
