Tolerance Is Not Enough

Tolerance is not enough.
Tolerance allows me the luxury of staying right where I am.
Tolerance allows me to continue to view others with all the same prejudice, disdain, and hatred.
Transformation, radical change, requires a move toward compassion.
Compassion leads to relationships.
Relationships open us to understanding.
Understanding provides the firm ground for reconciliation.
Reconciliation changes everything.
