In many S. Asian languages, the word for tomorrow and yesterday is the same. (Maybe we see time as cyclical, not linear.)
Just like the Sphere.
Moving forward means we're ignoring most of what's beside us and what's behind us. Moving backward is no better. We need to transcend.
It's the usual drivel. What I will point out is: it looks backward.
The answer isn't to move in the opposite direction. We're not playing tug-of-war.
Let's use our diversity to have conversations about where ALL of us come from.
Let's listen to experts who know their stuff and amplify their voices. Message their message.
Let's create and hold on to an aspirational vision of an inclusive America. We should all be #AspiringAmericans.
