X appeared to be a difficult letter to get to grips with, I toyed with other ‘x’ words but kept getting drawn back to xenophobia, an acute dislike of foreigners.
Not necessarily of other cultures, however. We seem to be very tolerant of the cultures we like to embrace, whilst at the same time disliking the people from those cultures.
What we must realise is that we are all descended from the same source. We are all inextricably linked by our ancestors, no matter what we may look like in our generation.
For the whole of eternity people have been transient, they have moved from coast to coast and if we were all able to trace our lines back far enough in time we would find those people we may fear now are our forefathers.
Xenophobes, you should be more afraid of someone exactly like you.
Enjoy the journey!
