What will it take to bring change? To move into a place in our consciousness where we truly understand that not only are we connected, but interconnected?
These are some of the main questions that circle around in my head as I move through the border communities, in and out of conversations with individuals who live here, organizations committed to bringing this change, and migrants themselves.
I believe, as I have for some years now, that the change begins within each of us individually. Until we truly learn to embody what we are feeling - and trying not to feel - we remain numb to the experiences of others around us.
The change that needs to happen begins within me, within you, within everyone of us. It looks, and feels different for each of us, and is so needed.
