Ok, so a skull just looks like a skull doesn't it? They all look the same, yet facially everyone looks different? The same goes for animal skulls, they too are the same. Take the same breed of dog, all the skulls look the same but each dog is different?
So when you think about it, what physically makes us human is the same in each and every one of us. From country to country, continent to continent. From race, to colour, to creed. We are all the same. We just look a little different on the outside.
With this in mind, there isn’t a single person alive of any age that was born hating anyone else. Not now, never has been and never will be. It has to be conditioned into someone to not like another. Doesn’t matter what colour your skin is, what your sexual orientation, or your religious beliefs. We all are born with the same capacity for tolerance and for compassion to one another. It’s what we are told as children and what we believe without questioning as adults that changes this. I advocate to all that we should question everything. Especially to our children or the minds of those who are impressionable. Only then will we become smarter, more tolerant and less ignorant.
By questioning what you see, what you read and what you hear you automatically are making yourself smarter. Not just to those around you, but for the world we live in. If people didn’t question why, then so many things would never have happened.
I urge all of you to question something. Anything. Everything. Research what you see and never take the word of a tabloid newspaper as anything other than a mockery of factual journalism it will never be.
We can be the same or we can stand out as being special. By being educated in and by life.
We have two lives, the second one begins when we realise we only have one!
