“Putting aside our differences permits our similarities to shine bright.” – #one_world
Noting similarities is possibly as much a mindset as an exercise in seeing people before us. How we choose to see others impacts on how we treat them and ultimately on how we live our life: closed and cautious or open and curious.
We could also choose to move through life without any regard for those around us, centred in our own thoughts. Yet when we do start noting similarities between others and ourselves, the elements used by some as barriers to peace – language, culture and religion – may seem of secondary importance.
Without suggesting any way is the best way to handle the huge question of integration, by noting similarities some basic truths seem pertinent: cut us and we all bleed, despise us and we all suffer, love us and we all feel special.
