While sitting in the park one day and watching ducks swim in a pond, a few insightful thoughts surfaced.
Life has many walls and fences that divide, separate and categorize people. These walls block people from learning how to get along with one another. Then I thought about some of the barriers that come between us such as ethnic communities, sexual identity, race, status, wealth, education or even personality differences. There are a lot of barriers that separate us.
So, what are we doing to breakdown such barriers and embrace diverse culture? The answer it seems – is not much!
This is a question everyone must ask when faced with differences that lead to hate. Keep in mind, you are free to hate or love. It is a matter of choice. I believe we all want to do the right thing. If you have chosen to love – your road will be tough with all types of twist and turns. But in the end, you will likely be happy with your choice.
On the other hand, if you selected hate (many do choose that) then your life will surely be filled with difficulties. Hate operates like a bottle of poison you have just taken, hoping to feel better down the road. You decide what path you want, and I hope in the end you do not choose hate.
