The horizon is just a little further; keep going.
One of the most striking passages that I read from the Beyond Hero’s and Holiday’s, was the one that says “we must help people recognize that so long as some groups are excluded and alienated from educational and occupational opportunities, our world is precarious.” From what I can tell and predict, there will ALWAYS be some group somewhere, somehow that is excluded or alienated. Thus, our world will always be precarious.
This is an ongoing battle that will never end. We can try and try as hard as we can, but we will never achieve a perfect world that all people are treated equally. Because of this, I predict that even though some teachers will put up a huge effort to having a diverse curriculum, there will always be something somewhere with someone, that will not be quite right.
In this way, it is like chasing down the horizon. The horizon will always be there and seemingly the same distance away despite your valiant efforts to get closer to it. But, keep chasing that rainbow because there really can be a student that is stronger and more included than they were yesterday because of you. Tomorrow, there will be another student that is alienated and another that you may reach on your journey to the horizon.
I am on that journey to the horizon.
