I understand that our perspective differs and our principles sets us apart. According to Lucky Dube's "Different colors one people " we all have a list of things that makes us different but one thing binds us together and that is HUMANITY.
You were a human before you turned black or white, you were human before you were born rich or poor, you were a human before you become a atheist, Christian, Muslim, traditionalist or whatever your religion is.
Despite our differences in culture, ethnicity, language, and beliefs, humanity is the thread that binds us together. We are all human beings, with the same basic needs, desires, and aspirations. We share the same planet, breathe the same air, and rely on the same resources for survival.
Little wonder, In the face of challenges like natural disasters, pandemics, or global conflicts, we are reminded of our common humanity and the need to work together to overcome them.
Our diversity enriches us, bringing different perspectives, ideas, and experiences that broaden our understanding of the world. We can learn from each other, celebrate each other's religion, and support each other when need be.
When we embrace our common humanity and recognize our interconnectedness, we can build bridges instead of walls, and promote empathy, compassion, and respect for all. At the end of the day, what matters most is not our differences, but our shared humanity. We all want to live in a world that is safe, just, and sustainable, where everyone has the opportunity to thrive.
By focusing on what unites us rather than what divides us, we can create a more inclusive and harmonious society, where diversity is celebrated and everyone is valued for who they are. Let us remember that we are all part of the same human family and work together to make our world a better place for all.
Next time, when you set your principles create a space for being just HUMAN. Forgetting whomever you are and just be HUMAN.
HUMANITY should be basic in all our differences.
Choose to be Human.
Insist on Humanity. Stay Human.
