We’re up against our toughest opponent yet: Ourselves.
If we’re ever going to have a chance of winning, we’re going to have to work as a team. And what makes the difference between a great team and one that’s simply OK isn’t speed or strength – it’s the ability to learn from mistakes and adapt to whatever the opponent throws at us.
As the great Nelson Mandela once famously wrote:
“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”
We’ve learned how to hate. Now it’s time to learn how to love and stand united against racism.
