I’m sharing this story to highlight how important it is to create this environment for people like Bego…and for everyone around us. Never should we feel judged or discriminated against based on what we look or sound like, or any of those surface level things that might divide us. Whether that’s the ethnic cleansing of African tribes in Sudan, or unprovoked attacks in Kent, this bullshit needs to stop. Inside each of us is a complex, unique and beautiful story that has brought us to this very moment. We all have our own pain, that I understand, but never do we have the right to inflict that upon anyone else.Spending time with Bego has taught me this.
I hope you feel better soon little bro. Keep shining that light that seems to overcome any darkness in your way.
Happy one year anniversary in England… I hope you know that you are so very welcome here.
