Hitchhikers Guide to more Empathy – weather changes
can hitchhiking help foster inclusion? we pick up young and old people, from all over the world (literally), in day in night, during cold and hot times and i think the answer is . . .
but, would you stop for everyone?
like you brake for birds,
or old folks?
it sure is a tough question, since you never know who you’re going to spend the shared ride with. my personal hitchhiking experience is overwhelmingly positive, but i’ve also been told stories by friends picking up people with clear and intense mental ‘challenges’ sparking a rather problematic – short lived – relationship. either way a positive attitude towards picking up someone in need of a lift should be kept up and fronting a little bit of trust, most of the time, doesn’t hurt anyone.
i mean does the homeless looking dude necessarily pose a threat or can’t be good spirited?
in the end picking up or hitchin a ride feels a little bit like the weather. its got a lot of faces.View other posts by staff stuff
