We have practiced “social distancing” since the beginning of time, whether it be because of a modern day virus or a virus that has permeated human relationships throughout history. We continue to practice social distancing through the virus of prejudice, discrimination, judgement, superiority, bullying, and fear. Our world has become a global village where, irrespective of race, religion, nationality or colour, we, as social beings, are socially distanced from each other. Modern technology has allowed us to communicate with distant strangers but makes it more difficult to communicate with the person sitting next to us. “Freckles and Dara – A Fable for all Ages!” is a modern day parable about how two innocent but gifted lambs try to eradicate social distancing and remind us that life is richer and more colourful if we see it in all its diversity. But are we willing to pay the price? The end of the book contains two sets of reflection and discussion questions. One can be used by parents to discuss issues raised in the book with their children. The other contains questions adults can use to reflect on how such issues may have affected them on their journey to adulthood.
