Introduction: I am Human - Anna DiGiovanni

Humans spin through the Universe on a rock they call Earth

That’s a known fact.

 

Imagine an Alien from another Galaxy

Coming to the Milky Way and discovering Earth for the first time

The Alien would think,

“Human species, they are all the same.”

Maybe the alien would have another word than human.

Maybe the alien would call us

Flesh and bones

Flesh and blood

Or just blobs

 

And maybe the Alien would be right.

 

We are Flesh and bones and blood and blobs.

We are the same.

But the world I live in and the world my neighbor lives in

Is so different.

 

Even more so

the world I live in and the world my neighbor lives in

Is so different

Than the world of someone three miles down the street

Three miles

the difference between privilege and the ghetto

 

I live in privilege

I work in privilege

Even when I visit the Ghetto

 

I work on Earth

I work as a human

I am the same

And

I am very different

 

I am Privilege
