Awareness Is …

A person is aware when they contemplate the world around them, when they
understand they are just a grain of sand in the universal ocean, when they
recognize how good we have it and empathize with those who are less
fortunate, when they know what’s going on in the world outside of their
city, state, country, race, creed, or origin, when they form their beliefs
based on their own moral compass and are not influenced by media or popular
culture, when they can put themselves in somebody else’s shoes who may
think very different from them and understand why they think that way.
