Imagine what it’s like to live a life without feeling human?

Imagine the loss of self and constant anxiety that must come with living such a life.

Imagine being sick but not being able to go to the doctor because it’s too expensive.

Imagine missing pivotal moments in your loved ones lives because leaving could mean not returning “home”.

Imagine home not being home but still being home while your original home is now a stranger’s land.

Now imagine how many systems you knowingly or unwittingly participate in that dehumanize people.

How does that make you feel?

Unfortunately, this life I talk about isn’t fiction, it’s reality for many around us yet we don’t see them. At least that’s how it feels some times.

Too many times.

Imagine we tapped into our humanity as soon as we woke up. What type of world would we have?
