To the north and beyond

Martin Luther King, Jr said it best, "There is nothing more dangerous than to build a society, with a large segment of people in that society, who feel that they have no stake in it; who feel that they have nothing to lose. People who have a stake in their society, protect that society, but when they don't have it, they unconsciously want to destroy it."

Have we grown to this mental state?  Do we want to destroy that which we do not feel part?  We need to travel.  I have been.  I have seen many people and the mirco-cultures in our country.  I cannot claim to know everything, but simply we must travel to see the world.  We must become more familiar with its lines.  We must become familiar with its feel.  We must become familiar with each other.
