While I’m glad that the crown is diversifying and letting go of old and outdated traditions, I think today it’s important to talk about what this wedding really is: a distraction
We’re living in a world with so much pain and injustice, where for many suffering is the norm. While I understand that everyone could use a good distraction once in a while, I think it’s important for us as a society to reflect upon why we are choosing this in particular to be our distraction. Why are we so obsessed with all of the glitz and glam, while there are so many out there who have so little? Or better yet, why we are supporting an outdated institution that has no business even existing in the 21st century to begin with?
Today as we all get lost in all of media coverage of Harry and Meghan’s wedding, try to remember that there’s so much more to this world than a prince and princess getting married. There are real problems that need solutions, and it’s going to take people letting go of the many distractions that society has to offer in order to make any real change occur
Just some food for thought
