Quote A Day Keeps The Dr Away

You place Josh down here and you place yourself up here. And you say: That is not me. I could never be like that. That person is other. Undeserving, a monster. It’s an old story. It’s how wars begin, it’s how people turn on each other. And, you know, it starts so simply too. I am not you. I am nothing like you. And it is each time a lie. Because underneath all the layers of fear and protection we are at our core the same. We have the same needs. We carry in us the same capacity for good and evil.   -Dr. Tom, Being Erica
