What happens when a globally recognised figure who is active on social media does not understand the power of his words?
Firstly, those words reverberate around the world within minutes, because of social media.
We need to understand the power of our words. Saying words is the final part of the creation process, and every word carries its own magic.
We also need to take responsibility for what happens in our own small corner of the world, by being aware of the consequences of what we say.
Any eye for an eye based on words spoken in haste or words not thought through does not make the world a more peaceful place.
Rather than say "we are not like that" - and adding a barrier, say "Tell me more? I want to know about the other side"
The result is that we accept and tolerate our differences, and look out for each other.
