I do not understand the views of most people in the world today. It always comes down to a "Them or Us" menatlity. Why is it that people must always find new reasons to disagree and then turn those disagreements into lines of division.
The Them or Us mentality is everywhere in the world today. You have smokers vs. non-smokers, christians vs non-christians, whites vs people of color, straights vs gays, and the list goes on into infinity with new conflicts being added on a daily basis.
Do any of us live our lives so perfectly that we have the right to tell others how to live theirs? Telling others how to ive is not our reason for being. We should be focusing on living our own lives in the best way possible. We should love one another and care for one another no matter our differences. After all we are all members of the same race, Human.
There are two very well known quotes that we all seem to be ignoring that will be fulfilled if we coninue down te path we are following.
The first is "Those who do not learn from history are destined to repeat it."
And the second is, "A house divided agaisnt its self cannot stand."
If we look back on history we will see that intolerance for the way others live has caused more destruction to our natural world and to us as a people than any other factor. We must learn from this and accept those around us regardless of the differences that are there. This will unite us as brothers and sisters and create a more peaceful world.
