Patron Saint of Inclusion

Today’s Daily Prompt asked: ‘In 300 years, if you were to be named the patron saint of X, what would you like X to be? Places, activities, objects- all fair game.’

The main aims of my blog is to spread positivity and to inform people about diversity. A quick look around you would tell you that everyone is different. Different race, cultural upbringing, spiritual/ philosophical beliefs, educational background, gender, sexual orientation, I could go on. Some people are scared and some are angry just because the people around them are not like them. Such feelings could result in fights, arguments, prejudice and discrimination, and at times, war.

Inclusive practices in schools and communities are changing these negative attitudes, albeit on a slower pace than one would like. People with special needs and disabilities are being understood and included in schools, religious settings and community functions. Educating people about the differences between each individual significantly improves the likelihood that they will accept diversity. Although more needs to be done, progress is evident.

I would love to become the Patron Saint of Inclusion. The one who, throughout his life, lead by example. I want to show people that the way forward is to learn more about diversity and accept everyone who is different.
