Black, White, Straight, Gay…Isn’t There Room For All Of Us?

Like a few other English words, “Room” means two contradictory things. It can be the four walls that enclose us, giving us shelter and comfort but also limiting our movement.

It’s also the limitless space into which we can wander and which we can fill — or try to (think about that expression, “room to grow”). – Ben Huberman

There’s room for all of us and room to show a little compassion toward others as well as ourselves.
