"It is clear that the way to heal society of its violence... and lack of love is to replace the pyramid of domination with the circle of equality and respect."

And it occurred to me that we do the same thing sometimes to the new guy. We gather together and judge and attack- not with a gripping bite perhaps, but with stinging words and whispers. And the new guy feels as traumatized as Boss did.
Let's not start fights. Let's extend a hand. Let's be friendly and welcoming. Let's remember that we too were once the new guy...
I remember how hard it is to be new at things and am willing to be welcoming and kind.
