Reader’s Share: The Wrong Side of History

Wrong Side of History

Here’s a photo that was shared by Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian Facebook Community member Saman Waquad. It reminds me of a photo I shared in an earlier note which gave a really simplistic roadmap for How to Change the World, and it also reminds me of Dr. King’s quote which said that “the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice”.

History is a steady teacher, and one thing time continues to show me is that while we may think we’re holding on to something for ourselves, in limiting the capacity of others, we lose as a society collectively.

I’m a Social Justice Educator and Aspiring Humanitarian who is interested in conflict resolution, improving intergroup relations, and building more equitable and inclusive communities.

“Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian” is my blog, where I write about issues of diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice. By exploring social identities through written word, film & video, and other forms of media, I hope to continue to expand and enrich conversations about social issues that face our society, and to find ways to take social action while encouraging others to do so as well in their own ways.
