I think the challenge in getting mainstream society to see what we see is showing them that there is another way of looking at things, a different perpective. Most people are resistant to change, even when that change would create benefits for them and their posterity. Most people are uncomfortable in admitting that they've made a mistakes. I thinks that's just human nature. As someone who works Monday-Friday with the mainstream population, I've come to see that many are willing to try to hear and learn, and that most of them have just never been exposed to these kinds of concepts before. I've also learned through many mistakes of my own, that others are more open to learning something new and different when I approach them with unconditional love, understanding, and forgiveness, rather than anger and judgement. It's so easy to label them as "different, bad, or evil". Many of their acts have been those things. But, they are our brothers and sisters, put here by the Creator. We must be the ones to take the step forward, and to extend our hands with love and friendship. I think if we do, they will be happy and glad to receive it.
