Safety in vulnerability

Our protection is in being friendly, open with people, not closed, ignoring them. On a dark city street we share a bus stop wind shelter with young people dressed in their disaffected way: if we treat them as objects, things in our way, “they” will have little desire to help us should we need help. Indeed, if we become real persons to these real persons, and if they had intended us harm, we are making it harder for them to do their wrongs, easier to be kind to us. Safety in vulnerability!
