Welcome Stranger

In focusing on attributes that we identify as masculine, we blind ourselves not only to how else we might live, but to other aspects of our nature: that a human from almost any part of the planet can travel to another culture and integrate. We have given little study to the wonder of our cooperative nature, of our ability to accept strangers or to be included, to adapt and, despite the risks, live among people with different histories and values.
