Last night I got a taxi ride home after a much needed night out. My taxi driver was a man from Somalia, who took a boat from Northern Africa to Greece as a refugee, got into Turkey, and then after some time made it to Finland where his wife was already waiting. Now he has been in Finland for about 10 years.
I know it’s a radical thought, but I think we are all just ordinary people here on earth, and the majority of us are good, and want the same things, a successful happy healthy life for our family and friends. Let’s not spoil it for all of us because of the minority of shitbags out there.
How about the fact that you can get that much information out of someone on a taxi drive home. That is the kind of connection people need to be making with one another. People can be quite introverted, have a wall up, and don’t spend the enriching time to take interest in others.
