All the time I talk to people who are terrified by the “worst case scenarios” of reaching across racial, religious, and other cultural divides. And I do understand–multiculturalism involves an element of risk, just like LOVE involves risk. But I believe that taking those risks–bridging those gaps–is our only hope for a better world. The suggestion that we not bother trying–now, THAT’S what truly terrifies me.
