Forward from the writer: In this series “How Come…”we will be looking at issues within our various institutions and systems to bring awareness and start proactive discussions with the aim of bringing much needed positive change. Change we all know is needed even if we don’t know the how. This is not about pitchforking people or parading seeming wrong doers in front of a virtual town hall for embarrassment and shame. Our society has done that for too long with unpleasant results. It’s also not about showing a problem without solutions. We are human and it’s obvious that in the journey of life errors will occur. Some forced, some unintentional. People will need help. The goal here is to create a space for us to look at what we are doing as a society through a particular issue and then, hopefully, bring positive change, with human dignity. Like the good man said, you may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one…
