Giving the Gift of Tolerance

“Men build too many walls and not enough bridges.”
― Joseph Fort Newton

This past week has been difficult … emotionally. Apparently, my mind is overloaded with all the facts, news, spin and controversy over the coronavirus pandemic. In a time that we, as global citizens, need to be united, there are forces designed and determined to divide us … for their own agenda and benefit. To this, I say…

Whether you are religious or atheist,

Whether you are light skinned or dark skinned,

Whether you are straight or LGBT+,

Whether you are highly educated or just have street smarts,

Whether you are a professional or a laborer,

Whether you are rich or poor,

We Need Each Other!

We have more in common with each other than we have differences. We all want the best for ourselves and our families. This in turn, will produce vibrant, healthy, cooperative and productive communities in which everyone can prosper … if we simply be tolerant of our differences.

“Laws alone can not secure freedom of expression; in order that every man present his views without penalty there must be spirit of tolerance in the entire population.”
― Albert Einstein
