We are the same...
If you start from any other premise that we share more in common
than our differences as humans...then you are part of the problem.
Disagreement? Ok. No problem. Still the same. Human.
Skin color different? Still the same. Human.
Tribe different? Still the same. Human.
Religion different? Still the same. Human.
Gender different? Still the same. Human.
Political views different? Still the same. Human.
Sexual preference different? Still the same. Human.
Economic class different? Still the same. Human.
President or Prime Minister of a country? Still the same. Human.
Education and opportunities different? Still the same. Human.
Bank account bigger? Still the same. Human.
Good things happen to bad people. Doesn't make them good. Certainly doesn't make them better.
Bad things happen to good people. Doesn't make them bad. Certainly doesn't make them worse.
Not one of us is better than another just for the wearing of a "label" or a "title" or "circumstance."
Choices and actions will set us apart...
that is why we have systems and procedures designed
to hold people accountable--personal responsibility is a thing.
We are never going to agree on everything. That's ok...actually it's quite good.
But to immediately choose hatred, prejudice and malice on account of a label or opposing opinion...destructive.
Humanity is tearing itself apart on account of hate-ism...
and more often that not we don't even know "the other" --
we just hate because we see a "label."
Demanding that everyone think "like me" puts humanity on Game of Thrones...and that world is great--if you are the king. Not so much for "we the people."
Choose to be better.
Choose not to hate.
Hate-ism leads to no good end...ever.
Individual and collective choice is the most powerful change-agent known to mankind.
Education powers thought.
Thoughts generate action.
Actions fuel the planet...for better or for worse.
