Yet we use it often.
"I hate this". "I hate that".
Yet do we really understand the implications of what we are saying? Do we really hate, or do we strongly dislike?
When the word "hate" is thrown around in reference to people -- THIS is one of the most troubling situations that can occur.
When we hate a person we express an intensely strong ill will, which can lead to violence.
But why do we hate?
Hate often stems from fear.
And we fear what we don't know.
So therefore education is key. Candid conversations with the "enemy" will teach us much. And we may find that we like them. Perhaps we'll even find that we love them.
