I’ve been trying to think about what I really care about, and it seems to always come back to the same thing: equality. It makes my blood boil when I hear about people being treated less then equals to others just because of their race, ethnicity, religion, beliefs or even their gender. For the life of me, I just can’t understand why, as humans, we must always fight with each other if we don’t agree with something that has nothing to do with ourselves? We have all been living on the same planet for thousands of years, and in all that time we have yet to understand this simple understanding of equality and peace with each other. And I just can’t comprehend why that is. Someone’s religion doesn’t define who you are. Someone’s gender doesn’t define who you are. Someone’s culture or ethnicity doesn’t define who you are. Someone else’s beliefs don’t define who you are. So why are you trying to act like that person isn’t equal to you, for those reasons? The world needs to wake up and realize that we ARE ALL EQUAL. Whether you like it or not, that’s the truth. So, stop acting like we aren’t. Once we, as a society decide to accept the FACT that everyone is equal, so matter their differences, then, and only then, will we be able to start down the path to peace.
Food for thought.
