we are one

 

We must learn to live together as brothers [and sisters], or perish together as fools.”

– Martin Luther King Jr.

 

****************

 

Whatever the amount of melanin in our skin, whatever the shape of our eyes, whether our hair hangs long or in tight curls, whether home is a Manhattan apartment or a mud hut, our hearts are the same: we long for connection, we love, we grieve, we hope, we experience sorrow and joy, we hold onto love as we die.

 

****************

 

Every leaf of every forest throughout time has been unique – yet every leaf has been part of the whole, has only had existence, sustenance and meaning, because of that whole.

 

****************

 

When we finally grasp and embrace the core truth, that all of us, all of us are one…then this world will change.

 

It is never too late to give up your prejudices.

 – Henry David Thoreau
