We live in an interconnected world. All people, no matter what race, creed, color, religion or sexual persuasion; deserve to live in peace. Harmony and prosperity is something we all strive for. Because you are poor, does not mean you are ignorant. Because you are rich, does not mean you don't have compassion. Because you are black or Hispanic does not mean you are a criminal first and a human being second. Because you are a Muslim does not mean you are a terrorist. Because you are Jewish, does not mean your religion defines you or makes you an "other than." Because 'we' are better when 'we' understand, tolerance is a virtue. We came here to evolve, not to hate. We came here to find tranquilly, not discord. We came here to be the best "WE" we can be. Divided we fall and fail to be who we really are. We are human beings who need understanding and love.
Judgements should be left to your God. Learn from mistakes, no matter how painful. It is life's game, it is life's teacher.
Just love, live and be happy because life is so very short, tomorrow is not promised, each moment we breathe in life, is a gift. Own it.
