I hope that the images that I am sharing will stress that, beyond numbers and nationalistic egos, we should pause for a moment and look at these faces. They are human beings just like us who happened to be born in the "wrong" place at the "wrong time."

As a young individual observing all of this and thinking of the future of our society, I worry that the many voices of reason -- the many voices encouraging unity, diplomacy and peace -- struggle to be heard in all the hysteria. Controversy, after all, sells. I get it.

Unfortunately, we all know that when school budgets tighten, the arts are the first to go. But when we celebrate, we also bring attention to the decision makers who decide what gets cut. Let's get informed, let's get out there, and let's get some attention.

Andrew Morrison-Gurza

It's like a trance has been broken, and they all of a sudden remembered that looking at that guy in the chair is "wrong." That by looking at me in that way, they have somehow deviated from the cultural norms that my disability defies. What if I told you I want you to stare at me? What if I told you that in these spaces, I long to be stared at?

The idea that all of this is reaching such a large audience is disgusting. While we can't enforce modern beliefs on people who wish to pull society back to the morals of the early 1800s, we can still refuse to give them platforms.

All the choices you make on any given day make a difference. We don't always see the effects of our actions or our thoughts but believe me, they have an impact. Just because you can't see the effect right away doesn't mean that you are not creating change.

In parallel, technology has launched a drop-down drag-out fight for our attention through social channels, and external validation manifests itself through likes, favorites, shares and retweets. We love external validation.

To initiate effective public dialogue, we must develop a willingness to listen openly instead of ranting too loudly to hear anything but our own voice. We must refuse to be diverted by those with violent, self-aggrandizing, political agendas.

What does our history as a nation show about our responses toward to racial injustice? How have we acted in the past toward these emotionally charged issues that speak to the true nature of the human condition? But, more importantly, how are we going to act now? What changes can we make? What solutions can we bring? How do we fix something that because of our past may be irreparably broken?

The fall is my favourite season. The weather cools down and the baseball season heats up (have you seen the Toronto Blue Jays lately...). And for me since 2009 it also means charity: water's September campaign. As a known and unabashed admirer of Scott, his team and their work, I always look forward to seeing what they will do with their September campaign.
