Woke up today thinking about love and understanding.

Do you understand how some parent could facilitate their kid questioning or changing their gender?
Do you understand how someone of color could possibly see the whole system they exist in as being inherently racist?
Do you understand how someone could have intimate relations with someone else of the same sex?
Do you understand how someone could think life begins at conception?
Do you understand how someone could possibly think owning a gun is a meet and right thing?
Do you understand how someone could believe eating animal products was not an option for them
Do you understand how someone would think a venerated historic book or document would be the first and last word on anything done?
Do you understand how someone would think a woman wrapped in cloth head to toe except for their eyes was equitable?

Do you have to actually understand anything at all about any people around you when at 3AM the firetrucks are outside their house and they are shivering on the sidewalk? Do you bring out the blankets from the guest room and the comforter in the vacuumed plastic bag that you won’t need till October and pass around the I Heart Some State, City, or Type Of Dog mugs with hot something in it?

Do you think we should care first and then work to understand later?

Do you think we should love those around us based less on what they believe and more like their house was on fire?

Do you think we should just love like your own house was on fire?

Do you think there’s a special place in some hell for someone eating the leftover wings in bed after a long day while watching Alfred Hitchcock Presents on cable at 12:30am? Is that something someone might both love and understand?

Asking for a friend.
