The point of yesterday's post was to fight back against this idea I have seen a lot lately: the idea that we are not special, that we are just like everyone else, or as it is usually put, we are not unique snow flakes.
For me this attitude degrades the human condition. We are unique snowflakes, special, different and living lives with there own triumphs and challenges. And just because everyone is special does not in anyway reduce the importance of our own specialness.
However, with being special comes a burden. We have to live up to who we are. We have to be willing to question the rules of the world that seem to conflict with our values and the supposed values of the community we live in.
If we are special we must live that way.
