As a descriptive person, I love explaining things. I also love finding things out so I can describe it to others when asked. However, I can’t describe or find out the definition of normality. What makes someone normal? Is it their looks? But surely everyone looks different, so what features would be classified as normal? And does it not say in the Bible that God made man in his image? So what is God like? And is that impression considered normal?
Our World is a divided one, and one in which “different” people who have mental or physical disabilities are treated differently. Why? Is it due to personality? But yet again, everyone is different.
Nowadays society yearns for unity. It’s all about treating everyone equally. In this area, we’ve come a long way, but still haven’t quite finished the race. But will we ever? Will tomorrow bring forth a day where “different” people won’t feel frustrated or embarrassed because we can’t understand them? Yes, I believe so. Will there come a time when the unspoken tongue will be understood without machinery? Yes, I believe so. There will come the day when true equality will be reached. And at that time, normality will be understood. For me and you, the time is near.
So how and where do we start nearing to understanding normality? Why not try to understand ourselves? After all, we’re the biggest mystery of them all.
