Just so frigging proud to be a kiwi right now.
I always have and always will stand up for free speech. Over the past week I have had the privilege of seeing some genuine thoughts, art and sorrow on social media. There are also an equal no of passive agressive posts. I've been privy to some of these too. We as a nation mourn the loss. But in among this there are still mothers and families grieving loss of a child, partner or family through other ways, there are children being abused, there are horrific acts being committed around the world. And talking about that is ok too.
Our world has stood still. That doesn't deny anyone else the right to talk about and worry and complain about what is happening in their home country, or in their lives.
Someone said they unfriended anyone talking about other atrocities. Some one compared it to a needy friend whining about her larger problem.
If any of these genuine friendships and if we were really tolerant, we would have empathy and respect for each other.
So if you have lost a loved one recently, lost family or villages in to other atrocities, seen trauma, you are welcome to talk about it too. I will not unfollow you because you need to talk about your views, feelings or trauma. I will not put you down because your pain is not important enough for me right now nor will I ask you to get over it. I know the grief. I know the pain. So we can sit together and cry over our pain. Different as they may be. Traumatized as I may be. True tolerance is putting other peoples pain, experiences and troubles alongside yours. Not behind not in ahead.
Alongside. Besides each other.
So if you cannot be tolerant at this time to pain or needs of others, I may just unfollow you. And feel free to do the same. Because I will talk about it. I will share everyone's pain not just mine.
Kia Kaha. Much love. 💚
Kociamber, Szalpiw, APA, 5,3%
Too much kiwi flavour - not from hops, definitely is not a positive moment. As an APA - bitter and fruity. Average impression - not bad.
Za dużo smaku kiwi, które nie pochodzi z chmielu. Jako APA spełnia wszystkie wymagania smakowe - gorzkie, owocowe. W sumie nieźle.
Вкус киви, не хмелевого происхождения, перебивает аромат пива. Но как АПА пиво горькое и неплохое. В целом на 3+.
