Getting past the old way of seeing…

When we see the world this way, the old way of seeing individual particles and operating on statistics becomes limiting. We can meet people or we can make them numbers. Why do we give prisoners numbers and take away their names? To break them, to take away their person. When we meet people, when we see the particularity and heart and past the soupiness of sameness of skin, then we are in life. Life matters. Things don’t—simply because we deny them the ability to matter.
