The Tolerance of Intolerance by Justin R. Hart

Honoured to have written the Foreword for yet another unique CTU anthology…

Creative Talents Unleashed

Can we feel the intimidation,

the perilous fear,

the hasty conclusions?

Do we fairly judge,

assume before knowing?

Can there be balance, blending

a rainbow of opportunity?

Do we see the results

from our desperate violence?

Is this the nature of our nature?

It is our irrational attitude,

our blatant bias

that creates this blind vision,

a short sided intolerance,

and narrow-mindedness.

Can we hear the bark

of the dogmatic bigot

left standing on the street?

Do we smell the trifling disregard,

the preconceived judgment,

the half-baked ignorance?

Can we taste the bitterness

of our personal choices?

Do we quench our thirst

with savory apprehension

and smell our pungent suspicions.

We feel our quick decisions,

then hear mocking disrespect,

and jeers for our fears.

We have had years of tears,

flooding our rivers

to sea…With color blindness,

Rainbows do blend!!!
