A lot can happen in a conversation

It’s the end of this blog as we know it.

A blog ended.

Please Say More.

And I feel fine.

We’ve come to the end of our Social Media Marketing class.


In this class, our intent was to explore what it means to reach outside our bubble. Some of us focused on reaching into areas of Minneapolis and St. Paul that we’ve never been to. Some of us focused on asking questions and entertaining discussions across intellectual and empathic boundaries. Some of us looked at gender and sexual identities, others reached across religious boundaries to visit mosques and temples. Others looked inside and found the great fear of moving outside–a fear we could all agree on.

We noticed that something happened when we reached out: the people and the stories we encountered humanized issues. We started to see flesh and blood beings with histories and hopes and humor and fears. People just like us.

Plus: we realized reaching across boundaries and through bubbles requires humility.

  2. Kerfe–thanks for the note. My class had the challenge to move outside their comfort zones. Some really succeeded! Thanks for reading.
