We all want to be included

Last night I read a piece by Jeff Aitken about how as a Jew who had a first nations background, he felt like an outsider. This was pointed to by Chris Corrigan, a person who feels like an outsider because of Ojibway plus Irish and Scottish backgrounds. And I felt it even though I am white and protestant if not Anglo-Saxon, but was fat at least through grade school and have been through high school and puberty. We all feel like outsiders and we all long to be insiders: loved, accepted, even argued with.

We have an opportunity: include one another.
