First, I would like to say I haven’t blogged in a day because I was starting to feel very vulnerable about the process I am going through. I am in a very controversial part of the world, studying coexistence in a place where it may seem impossible, and I’m looking at it from angles that many people don’t get to see. The media is in control of how we at home perceive the information, and here, your location and language controls yours (mostly). I realize when talking about this I should choose my words carefully, which is very hard for me to do because I don’t even know what words I want to say, all of my own perceptions are being challenged. The more people I meet the heavier this conflict becomes to me, and that weight is hard for me to hold. Sometimes I don’t even know what I’m holding.
