I am honoured to be part of the WOW! Women of Writing Blog Tour for M. T. Becker’s book Zinger in the Woods.
Today this husband and wife writing duo are visiting my blog for a wonderful guest post on Social Issues.
Welcome to you both:
Equality, according to Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary, is the state of being equal, especially in status, rights, and opportunities. But, how does a nation-state achieve a state of equality? A state where all of its citizens have equal status, rights, and opportunities. Obviously, no country knows how since universal equality has never been achieved. Why? Because no government, elected official, or civil rights leader can change the fact that human beings are not created equal. We are all unique individuals with unique needs and wants.
Not to mention, if we were all equal, who would determine the standards of equality; the government, societal norms, the majority population…WHO? If I am what the world has labeled a minority, do I strive to be equal to the majority just because their hue is different, or do I realize my self-worth and approve my own message and approve WHO I see in the mirror? I approve who I see in the mirror and become the person I always wanted to become instead of becoming equal to someone else.
Thank you Mark and Tiesha for your insights on equality.
