Our Humanity Defines Us

My color, my language, my body shape, and my religion, All do not define me! My humanity Does. Humanity is the only thing that makes us either the same or different. It differentiates between the good and the bad and it is the only massage that must be true to accomplish peace!

You may not be pretty, but with your humanity you can be the most famous person! Your may not be religious, but with your humanity you can adopt a child and give him a loving shelter, you may not be rich but you can gather around a small table with your family and spend hours laughing!

White, Black, Muslim, Christian, Asian, Gay, Straight, etc. These are labels we give people when they were born a certain way or chose to live their life in a certain manner! Who am I to decide who is right? What makes me right anyway? Accepting others is what we lack! no matter how people look, or how they live, we can always accept to live with them. The time when we see people as people rather than objects is the time we are going to establish peace.

There is no one way to do something! there is always otherwise and this is how we evolve! I am not favoring gay marriage or drug addiction but I love my friend, who may be gay and I love my friend who might be addicted, and will help them when they need me, (If you know what I mean)!

We, human beings were created rational! they way we see things adds too much to who we are! Make sure you rationalize things the right way, and remember this, what may seem so right for you, may seem wrong to some others! So, do not satisfy others, satisfy your humanity!

"Satisfy your humanity"

That's a very strong message.

I totally agree with you. things like religion and their outlook on life are very personal attributes - and these cannot be forced on anybody. Unless it's embraced by the individual there is no meaning in being a of any faith.
But yes, it is important that people be informed and empowered with a wide variety of information.
What we need is people who can take educated decisions for the problems at hand.
