Blessed Beyond Belief: All Things Being Equal – Paul D. Lowe and Kristin Johnson & Maxine Clark

View descriptionShare

On this episode of the World Game-Changers podcast, Paul is joined by Kristin Johnson and Maxine Clark to talk about equality.


  • Equality is something that we’re born with, it’s our birthright, but depending on the circumstances it doesn’t always show up. But it is something that is ingrained in the human condition, and I passionately believe in it.
  • When I was a child my mother was a civil rights activist who had worked during WWII for Eleanor Roosevelt as a secretary who traveled with her and my Mum learned a lot from her, When she moved back to Miami after Franklin died, she married my Father and she and several of her friends started a school for children with Down’s Syndrome to stop them being put in asylums. That was my introduction to the idea that we all have something to contribute and a reason for being on this planet.
  • Growing up when I did in the 50s and 60s it was much more equitable, there was a much larger middle class, you had people in your neighbourhood who were doctors, lawyers, policemen, truck drivers, my father was an electrician. You didn’t know what people made, you didn’t know their politics, you just lived in a neighbourhood with people, humans, friends, dogs and cats, and all the other things that go along with being a child in those days. I feel like we’re all craving that connection, that needing to be seen as a person not as a skin colour, a gender, as tall or short, not as 17 or 75 years old, but as a human being that has something to contribute. That’s how my family lived, I didn’t know there were differences in people just because they looked different than me – everybody looked different than me.
  • I have a million questions when I meet someone: Where did you come from? How long have you lived here? How many times have you moved? In asking questions you find common ground and by listening and not talking yourself you find out so much about life and you didn’t have to do it yourself, you can live through someone else’s experiences. That’s how I see it: I’m a problem solver, like both my Mum and Dad, if something’s broken and I know there’s a solution somewhere – or I don’t know yet and I want to see if somebody else is fixing it properly – I’ll go and do that, or I’ll bring people together to do it.


‘Equality is giving everyone a chance no matter where they start from, where they come from, it’s the American Dream and a dream throughout the world.’
‘We all want to be safe, we all want to have friends, we all want to live in a nice home in a nice street where there’s good schools, shopping and transportation.’
‘We have so much potential in each of us.’
‘Our job is to make sure that we see everybody as an individual.’
