The blacks of South Africa were considered inferior. Nelson Mandela brought in a more equal social order. He made a difference.

Women were—and still are—considered inferior to men. Ruth Bader Ginsburg and others made a difference.

Rosa Parks, considered an inferior black, refused to let a white passenger take her seat on the bus. She made a difference.

First Nations people were considered inferior. Residential schools “bettered” the lives of their children. And children died—away from family and home.

Those with mental health challenges, no matter how well they function,  are considered inferior. Not of equal worth. Not credible. When will they be heard?

We’re God’s children. Brothers and sisters all.
