Is it a battle? Is it a game? A competition? Five young men in different colored attire raising their wands with energy and passion. No one looks to be injured but if wands were opinions we could hear the noise. When we are so engrossed in our individual expressions how can we hear what the other people have to say? For a civil society, what good can come from that? The message here is a support of diversity. When we are truly confident in our opinions we don’t feel threatened by differences and can allow for a frank and easy sharing. After all, the end game isn’t to get others to necessarily agree with your opinion but rather to have them hear you express it. They are free to make their own decisions as you are free to make yours.
