Today we remember Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the man and his message of peaceful coexistence for all of humanity; it is a message from over 50 years ago, yet I believe, tremendously important and relevant to our world today. I've always felt we are ALL one race, the human race, all brothers and sisters living on this planet together, sharing one world, because that's how I was raised and what I believe to be the truth. We all need love, we care about our loved ones, we all feel pain or bleed in the same way, we all often laugh at the same things, are saddened by the same things, are all so very similar, as human beings. I believe these are the similarities that bind us, in our shared humanity.
Yet many choose instead to focus on our differences, and seek to divide, to segregate, to discriminate based on whatever aspect they decide to look at that differentiates "them" from "us," be it personal beliefs of creed and religion, political preferences, the place you happened to be born in, or sexual orientation. I personally feel that until we can all come together in love and unity, embracing and celebrating our differences, rejoicing in them (for they are what makes each of us "US," unique individuals), accepting and seeing the beauty in all societies, all cultures, part of one big, wonderful world, that we will continue to wallow in detrimental things (like hatred, fear and war) which only hold our species back from evolving and advancing in a positive manner into the future. A future we could all make brighter by working together, as one big, human family.
