Hi Adam! Great post and it is really enlightened of you to accept your privilege, most people remain unaware of it. I think a lot of ignorance in the world originates from that only. Only if every person in the world could become enlightened of his/her privilege and empathize with the less privileged, I truly believe the world would be better place to live.
I loved this line from the article: “I’m cognizant that that piece of paper — a visa — is the difference between fear and understanding. It’s disappointing, but it is the world we live in.”.
