We all hear the same sounds. We look up at the same sky. We cry the same tears. Our feelings and emotions are the same. All mothers are sisters. All fathers are brothers. All children are one. Yet there is hate. There is violence. There is intolerance. There is confusion among people. We don’t try hard enough to understand each other. We don’t seem to realize that we all have the same basic needs, no matter who we are or what part of the world we come from.
We must understand the differences among us and celebrate that sameness. We must make the world a better place where love and friendship dominate our hearts. Equality, respect, compassion and kindness must guide our actions. Only then will we be able to peacefully and lovingly live the life we each choose. Susan Polis Schultz
