Everybody’s got a story to tell
Good, bad, terrifying, sad, great, mind-tickling…be it any of those

In our offices, homes, taxis, shops, parades, church, crusades, carnivals and festivals, weddings, birth ceremonies, burials…name it

Could it be that, we are inadequately informed about these things and how they come about?
Or, could it be that we are so reluctant to find out from numerous, possible explanations… (There’s always more to one side of the story, right?)
Or are our beliefs in our traditions, so strong to let us, hear from other perspectives of life?
