Cowards fear difficult conversations and vulnerabilities

I think that we could have so much more progress in this country if we were less afraid of being uncomfortable and discussing issues that are taboo. I honestly do think that Americans try to hold a mirror up to this country often, but it is still through the lens of the “bluest eye” In order to see what we really are, we need to allow ourselves to feel vulnerable, seek discomforting opinions and engage them with a respect for our own and others experiences with revelations about potentially shameful aspects of our culture to understand what circumstances are like for different people in this country, and do our best, confront those aspects and to make the situation better for all.
