Everyone on this planet is different. How boring it would be if we were all the same, huh? I tend to think it is our differences that make us most interesting and I fail to understand prejudice and discriminaton. Why can't we all get along? Why can't we practice brotherly love toward each other?
We can you know. We do have the ability.
I am not the first to scratch my head over this. The great Dr Martin Luther King, Jr once commented “We have flown the air like birds and swum the sea like fishes, but have yet to learn the simple act of walking the earth like brothers.”
Very much the same as now. Different race? Different religion? No religion? Gender queer? Very old? Physically disabled? How can any of these things really matter when meeting someone? Difference should be embraced . . . and loved!
