Day 202: Don’t ridicule people for being scared

Wednesday, July 20, 2016

Fear drives us to do stupid things. When people like Pauline Hanson and Sonia Kruger say they’re afraid of Muslims and that they want to feel safe again, what they want is an open and honest conversation to address their fears. Are they ignorant? Probably. But that is remedied with knowledge that comes through a considered dialogue. No politics, no judgement – just earnest, warts-and-all answers.

Hearts and minds aren’t won through ridicule.
