Thank you for writing so courageously and thoughtfully, Rachel.
I wish everyone would similarly realize the solution begins with contemplating and improving the individual in the mirror.
And I truly believe another part of the solution (for us Americans, at least) is simply befriending neighbors of different races, cultures, and beliefs. That can help dismantle the fences of misunderstanding.
It’s gonna take time.. and a non-fake desire for peace and goodwill. I honestly think most Americans have that desire.
