An idea worth spreading

The world is full of obvious things which nobody by chance ever observes. The young man standing on a giraffe can see less than the old man sitting down. I have always felt that the action most worth watching is not at the center of things but where edges meet. I like shorelines, weather fronts and international borders. There are interesting frictions and incongruities in these places, and often, if you stand at the point of tangency, you can see both sides better than if you were in the middle of either one. How often does our we come to include people of other faiths, other nations, other races? How often does our we link rather than divide?
