Recognition

Because here’s where I agree that we are all the same: It’s the invisibility that hurts. It’s the passing over, the looking away, the casual flick of the hand. It’s the denial of basic recognition. It’s the reluctance to concede that your story deserves to be told. ...
I refuse to believe that just because one group gets attention, another group gets dismissed. I don’t understand how telling one kind of story requires a blasé disregard for another. ...
But that requires effort and patience and curiosity and attention. ... If we want others to respect our stories, we have to respect theirs.
