We're all equal. No person in this world is worth more than anyone else. We're all human beings, and we're all different. Our differences are what make us human. Being human is what we all have in common. It doesn't matter to me what religion others choose to follow. I don't care about anyone's skin color, body type, physical "disabilities," race, nationality, sexual orientation, etc. We need to understand that every single person in this world has different beliefs, ideas, opinions, points of view, likes, dislikes, dreams, wishes, passions, etc. We need to understand, respect, accept, embrace, and tolerate all of our differences. We need to treat everyone with kindness, no matter how different they are from us. We need to open our minds and our hearts and be willing to listen to other people and accept them for who they are. If we want to make this world a better place, we will need to unite our forces, and fight for peace with peace, respect, acceptance, and tolerance. We cannot fight for peace with violence. It only makes it worse. We need to stop spreading hate, and spread love, and only love. LOVE is what our world needs.
I am more than willing to do all of that. What about you?
