Continuing my view of life without sight, I wanted to speak on one of the most important elements of influence, and how not being able to see could change the world as we know it. The most important element of influence is our skin color.
Skin color has been the basis for race to exist in this world. Race is not a biological phenomenon, it’s a social idea to create a mindset of advantage or disadvantage. This mindset further fuels the competitive nature of us existing in the flesh. This to me has been the driving force behind social class or classism. When I think about race, I think competition.
Without sight, we would no longer see race. We would possibly be able to overcome some of the self-esteem issues, and bitter hatred that plague the consciousness of the world. We could gain the understanding that we’re all one, and we exist because of our common source. The diversity of our skin is just a mere fact that some have more melanocyte cells than others; creating darker pigmentation as it relates to the sun.
Yes without sight the world could possibly change, all we would be able to see is family. With family comes an innate feeling to nurture, to nurture we must share, as we share we develop into a community. If I could no longer see, what I would be able to see, is the world becoming one. My vision for life would become whole. To everyone throughout the world lets take the blinders off and see people for who there are, an extension of the human family.
To all my kindred spirits
