A World of Hello

by | Nov 23, 2020 |

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Hello. It’s a simple word, isn’t it? Yet, I wonder how much we think about how we’re using it.
This past weekend (Saturday, November 21) was World Hello Day.
Apparently, it’s been running since 1973, though I’d never heard about it before.
According to the website, the annual event was conceived to show people that conflicts can, and should, be resolved through communication and not violence. The idea is that clear, honest communication breeds peace.
Though it initially came out of the pain of warfare, I can’t help thinking we still need to learn those lessons.
And not only to resolve conflict, but simply to maintain that human bond, to share compassion, understanding – to just reach out and show another person they’re not alone.
If you ever read the piece I wrote about dealing with homophobic trolling in the wake of my Dangerous Rainbow TED talk, where so many were urging me to block and report all the haters, I took a different approach.
You see, I firmly believe an awful lot of hatred in our world is borne from ignorance. And though I’m not anti armed forces and understand that, sometimes, tougher measures are necessary, I do believe there isn’t nearly enough readiness to find common ground in the world.
So, for every nasty comment on my social feeds, I replied politely and invited people into a dialogue.
Some, of course, were way too wound up in their hatred and indoctrination to engage, but some entered into conversation with me and we did, indeed, manage to find a new level of understanding and acceptance.
I think we’re sometimes too quick to block. Too quick to hit out. Too quick to dismiss. And that only reinforces the bubbles we all live within.
If we’re not careful, we’re heading for more and more division and fall out, and that cannot be good for us all long term.
So, this week, with World Hello Day just behind us, I want us all to consider the power of such a simple word.
If you come across someone with a different opinion, how about saying hello and actually trying to learn from one another? Maybe there’s a way to find common ground and celebrate the differences, without needing to convert.
Whatever people’s politics, they might be sons, daughters, fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers, doctors, nurses, careers, feeders, teachers, fishermen, sports fans… they are far more than their voting record. You may have far more in common than in opposition.
Even beyond those areas of potential conflict and disagreement that might be soothed with a little more open-minded, open-hearted discussion, what about all those people you’re connected to and never contact?
Pick up the phone. Get onto social media. Open your email. Whatever you prefer. Drop them a line, just to let them know you’re thinking of them.
Out of the blue? Sure! But World Hello Day gives us the perfect opportunity.
“Hey, Bob. I know we haven’t spoken in forever, but it was just World Hello Day, so I’m just dropping you a line to say hi. How are you?”
“Hey, Alice. We’ve been connected here on LinkedIn for goodness knows how long, and we’ve never spoken. So, as it a just been World Hello Day, I’m saying hello. How’s life treating you?”
Who knows what positive effect that tiny message might have, in a world where so many are feeling worn down by the corona-coaster and everything else.
Hello. Tiny world. Two syllables. Power-full potential.
Get to it!
Until next time,
#UnleashYourAwesome,
Taz

Al Sisi’s Resurgent Egypt

Al Sisi’s Resurgent Egypt

It was al Sisi who mediated directly between Israel and Hamas because Egypt is the only Arab country adjoining and controlling the flow of life to Gaza, not Biden from 5900 miles away. To help the people of Gaza, al Sisi opened the crossings to allow urgent food and medical supplies to go through and allow the injured to be taken care of in Egyptian hospitals…

Who Pays for AOC’s ‘Abuela-Care?’

Who Pays for AOC’s ‘Abuela-Care?’

AOC blames others for her grandmother’s roof but does nothing herself. Matt Walsh does something himself. AOC wants taxpayer coercively funded government action. Matt Walsh took direct action with his own money. Which one is more compassionate? Which one cares more about family?

The War of the Red Dragon

The War of the Red Dragon

China believes in three forms of warfare: informational, economic, and kinetic (aka ‘guns blazing’). China determined that the United States would win a kinetic war, so while they saw war with the United States as necessary, they decided to use information warfare, and economic warfare, avoiding a kinetic war until China was in a position to win…

China’s Future in the Balance

China’s Future in the Balance

When we look at China today, the brutal purge and genocide of the Uyghurs, the persecution of the Falun Gong, the brutal suppression of the Chinese people throughout the COVID-19 crisis which the Chinese government itself caused, we should now understand that if Xi is willing to do this to his own people, what will he not be willing to do to us?

China Meddling in Our Local Elections

China Meddling in Our Local Elections

They use bribery, promises of lucrative industrial cooperation, jobs for everybody, etc., to get political leaders to taste the honey. Democrats are China’s lackeys, their fellow travelers, so to speak, and always, will be the first level that disappears into the gulags, prisons, or work camps. Democrats don’t see it coming because they don’t see what they’re losing. We see it; we just ignore it hoping…

Gates, Fauci, Covid Policing, and the New Normal

Gates, Fauci, Covid Policing, and the New Normal

Could Dr. Fauci’s “stakeholdings” with the Gates Foundation’s Leadership Council have clouded his thinking about hydroxychloroquine while declaring vaccines as the only cure and his support for “immunity cards” that could alert authorities to which Americans had not gotten their CCP virus vaccinations? Will he personally benefit from the Gates’ vaccines?

Global Warming is the Mother of all Moral Panics!

Global Warming is the Mother of all Moral Panics!

Greta Thunberg, AOC, and countless others tell us it’s time to panic about climate change! We actually think the opposite. It’s time to calm down. What we’re concerned about is the distinct possibility that catastrophic man-caused climate change is now what sociologists call a “moral panic.” The news media hypes the panic because exploiting fear and creating conflict is the foundation of their business model…

Political Kooks and Other Silly Nonsense

Political Kooks and Other Silly Nonsense

The greatest kookiness of all is the Critical Racist Theory, a concoction of feel-good nonsense designed as a black new deal to eliminate any silly contradictions from elements of the White race about who is really important in America. That can only be achieved by re-writing and teaching a new American history to fit the fantasies of foolish people. They call it “Woke,” but people with common sense call it BS, and a re-woke is coming…

Citizen Petition Urges FDA Against Premature Full Approval of Covid Vaccines

Citizen Petition Urges FDA Against Premature Full Approval of Covid Vaccines

Please see the notice to the US FDA from prominent leaders indicating the products are not sufficiently safe nor effective for full FDA approval. There are several action links for you to take an initiative. Many open, unanswered questions surrounding the efficacy and safety of COVID-19 vaccines must be answered before the FDA considers granting a full approval…

America’s Death by Lingchi

America’s Death by Lingchi

There is absolutely no doubt that the Chinese leaders view America’s shocking national debt, exploding budget deficit, negligent immigration policies, 2020 summer of racial and ethnic riots, and other internal discords, are the symptoms of a dying giant and most welcome enhancements to their efforts to become the world’s hegemon…

Bill Gates: Philanthropist or Maniacal Frankenstein?

Bill Gates: Philanthropist or Maniacal Frankenstein?

With Gates’ heavily-funded, over-exaggerated projection models and pre-COVID simulation trial, along with so many other “coincidentals,” it becomes difficult to ignore his involvement in the pandemic right down to the very last detail. Whatever one chooses to believe about who the real Bill Gates is, the truth is emerging about the role of “Gain of Function”(GoF) research…

For New Biologic Products, Demand Safety, Safety, Safety

For New Biologic Products, Demand Safety, Safety, Safety

This product of gain of function research in the Wuhan lab is what made SARS-CoV-2 super infectious and damaging to the body resulting in organ damage, respiratory failure, and blood clots. The CDC has verified a record 262,521 safety reports including 4,406 deaths, and 14,986 hospitalizations. These exceed the numbers for all previous vaccines in all years combined in history⏤making the COVID-19 the most dangerous vaccine of all time…
