Why do we care about how people look? Think? Wear? It is because they are different than we are. That is why we shun them. Make fun of them. But in all reality it is not that they are different; it is that we do not understand them. We think because they are not like us there is something wrong with them. We never get to know them.
But if we did we would discover amazing people. People who care. People who make some of the best friends ever. People who will teach us cool things, neat things, wonderful things. Yet something holds us back.
Fear maybe. Or just our own ignorance. Outcasts are only called Outcasts because we cast them out.
