Bias vs. Opinion

I have heard of an unbiased opinion. But when an opinion is based on biased, where have we learned what we know? How do we know what we know?
What have we learned and taught our children?
Should children form their own opinion?

These are all things that I would like to make a difference one person at at time. It is like a fish in water. The fish does not think twice about the water. It has always been there, and it is taken for granted by the fish. The water is all around it, yet invisible. This is how discrimination maintains itself. I also want to touch a bit on sexism, ageism an classism. These are all alive and well in the U. S of A.

I have experiences them all in some shape or form, and want to raise awareness to the cause of equality, rights to equal opportunity, and just pain playing fair on a level field.

I want to nurture a voice that opens minds, questions assumptions, teaches people to be tolerant and to accept people where they are and who they are. Take a breath before speaking, and walk in another person's shoes before passing judgement on them or their situation.
