What If I Became You?

what if

On Sunday Lucas and Dom had an interesting conversation on black holes.  The posited that it was a possibility if they went through a black hole they could switch identities.  This lead to a hilarious conversation about switching roles with Lucas being the grandfather and being married to me and Hillary being Dom’s mother and on and on.

But, after everyone went home it got me thinking about how would I behave if I thought I would come back to this world as another person.  Maybe a person of a different race and maybe a person without the economic privilege that I have.  Would I take the Biblical injunction to “Love my neighbor as myself” a little more to heart?

What if I became you

for just a day?

When I saw through

different eyes,

would I finally

understand?

Wishing you a week filled with good revelations,
