Someone I called a friend said something to me the other day that knocked the breath out of me. It was evident that she was upset about something, so, I asked what was wrong and if there was anything I could do to help. She looked at me, shook her head and said, "It's a black thing, you wouldn't understand."
Okay. Why does there have to be black things, white things, or yellow with purple pokadots things? Why not just a human thing? We keep saying we want to get along. We want to live together peacefully, but then we come up with brick walls to separate us.
My friend doesn't understand why I'm upset now. I'm tempted to tell her it's a "I'm your friend and you hurt my feelings thing, you wouldn't understand."
