Inclusion versus exclusion. Society seems to be battling with this a little more than it should these days. (Really? What heart ever gained by subtracting?)
Anyhow, writers of our relatively “little” standing can still do our part. Make it a point to include all races, all religions, all nationalities, all hearts in your “little” stories.
Welcome the world to your fiction and the world just may welcome your words to their hearts.
