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

All You Really Need to Know About Political ‘Consensus’ Covid Science

We now learn that the top medical guy in charge, Dr. Anthony Fauci, hasn’t been truthful in claiming, “a lot of what you’re seeing as attacks on me, quite frankly are attacks on science.” We’re now expected to believe, based on “following the science,” that a nonsensical federal mandate should be allowed requiring all employees, military, to be vaccinated with…

Covid and Your Cells Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough and Dr. Vincent Giampapa

Do you give any weight to the theory that the spike protein of the virus contains a prion-like domain? Is there any way to detox at a cellular level after receiving the Covid19 vaccine? In theory, would taking an anti-viral prior to the covid vaccine help limit the damage the spike protein might do my the veins/heart? Dr. Peter McCullough and Dr. Vincent Giampapa join us in a unique setting on The Voice of a Nation…

The Reckoning

The Reckoning

The global elite decided to build and use Covid-19 to weaken the Western World. These people were perfectly happy to kill off more than five million people to accomplish that goal, as they think the world has too many people in it anyway. Xi Jinping is going along only because the goals of the global elite currently align with the goals of Xi Jinping – which is to supplant the United States as the dominant power in the world…

Durham’s Timing Could Not Have Been Worse

Durham’s Timing Could Not Have Been Worse

The Russia-Collusion witch hunt was no ordinary crime. It was designed to bring down a sitting U.S. President by his political enemies. As such, the American people deserved to know at least some truth about that plot prior to the 2020 election. Durham’s timing is not to be applauded at all. We were robbed…

Theology was Created in Germany, Corrected in England, and Corrupted in the US

Your leaders now? Bill Gates (net worth: $138 billion), Mark Zuckerberg (net worth: $119 billion), Jeff Bezos (net worth: $197 billion), or the world’s richest person, Elon Musk (net worth: $317 billion), along with Big Pharma (and soon to be Big Green with its carbon passports) tell us if we can go out of our house, go to work, or even shop for groceries…

Soviet Show Trials Begin in America

Soviet Show Trials Begin in America

In one edict, Judge Jackson has violated the constitutional presumption of innocence, the first amendment guarantees of free speech, and the right to a speedy trial. A maxim of the law is “Justice delayed is justice denied.” Why? To deliver the Show Trial Warning to all American citizens: disobey government orders (not laws, orders) and you will be imprisoned forever without a trial…

Are Republicans Just Scared to Confront the Obamunists?

Are Republicans Just Scared to Confront the Obamunists?

Barack Hussein Obama certainly isn’t some kind of ‘senior statesman’ to be revered by Americans. He is a communist ideologue bound and determined to bring America down to her knees, and then replace America with a communist regime with himself and other select ruling oligarchs calling all the shots. “Build Back Better” anyone?

How Marxism Corrupts the Spirit and Soul Absolutely

How Marxism Corrupts the Spirit and Soul Absolutely

From the papal meetings with Speaker Nancy Pelosi and President Joe Biden, one could only hope for at least a repetition of what Jesus said: “Go and sin no more.” However, Marxism is Marxism. And in this case, the spiritual leader said essentially by his actions: “You are good Catholics! Go get communion whenever you want, even after the next 100,000 babies are aborted.”

Two Great Truths Will Determine China’s Future

Two Great Truths Will Determine China’s Future

Xi’s insatiable quest for personal power and recognition have put an insufferable burden on the Chinese people, and there are growing signs that his continuing imposition of bad policy on a suffering population has kindled resistance both within the CCP and the population at large. Is President Xi Jinping leading China to ruin?

Virginia Could Be Dracula’s Mortal Silver Bullet

Virginia Could Be Dracula’s Mortal Silver Bullet

Youngkin won because he addressed the issues that were most important to everyday Americans. These issues should be harnessed by every single GOP politician attempting to be elected. The GOP should not celebrate this crucial battle as if this is the end game. They must continue the same thread as if it did not happen, and be energized to…
