I got to thinking this weekend about how we seem to like sameness. You know, we hang out with people who have similar interests as we do. We like to talk to people who hold similar opinions to us.
A lot of what is reported in the news would seem to confirm we are afraid of situations we are not familiar with and people who seem different than us.
But really, when you think about it, we are all different from each other in one way or another. In fact we are all different from each other in many ways when we really look into it.

It seems to me that if we are honest with ourselves
difference is normal.
So what are we afraid of?
