Many people think that we need unity in the face of terrorism.
However ‘Unity’ is a funny thing. It requires understanding, openness, and a shared goal even though the paths taken are not similar.
It requires similar values that not necessarily put into action in similar ways.
– It requires a full knowledge of the fact that dissimilarities also exist. –
But most importantly, unity requires a shared vision.
…and ‘Vision’ is not just having an idea what the future might look like – it is describing the future as if it is now.
Until we have a clear vision of what unity means to us in the face of terrorism, we cannot agree on it, nor can we act on it.
