Ignorance

Really the first thought that came to mind was ignorant people…people that don’t understand something but instead of trying to understand make obnoxious comments or shame people or are abusive and hateful.

Then just now I googled the word… Lack of knowledge or information.

I wish I was ignorant about some of the things that I am not so ignorant about. Perhaps the only time I understand the stupid saying that ignorance is bliss… Because I can’t help feeling that if you’re ignorant about something your reaction should be to listen and to try to understand. To gain knowledge and not to judge. To refrain from commenting until you do those things.

Ignorance lies at the heart of so much hatred and contempt and fighting, and I just don’t see the need for it. I don’t have much to say, just that it makes me sad.
