“We are only as strong as we are united,
as weak as we are divided.”
― J.K. Rowling
The whole world is in chaos right now. It’s like we are being forced to live under a blanket of hate, racism, sexism, tribalism, distrust, grief, frustration and despair that prevents us from living a life of happiness, peace and contentment.
In the last few days, I came across two quotes that provide us with some direction, hope and peace in these troubled times.
“No matter where you go in the world, people’s beliefs are shaped by their experiences and environments. Politics, beliefs, and religion are always controversial topics between different demographics, but our perspectives are not who we are.
Where you come from, or what demographic you identify with, doesn’t change the fact that we’re all one species living on a rock. Dogma and group-think limit perspectives and do nothing but add to the “Us vs. Them” fire.
Nobody will agree with everything you believe, but if everyone around you does, then you’re probably in a cult. We are all human, living on one planet, and each of us is viewing life from a different perspective. We need to learn to accept each other; to realize that we all hold different perspectives, and that’s okay. It’s Us and Them, not Us vs. Them.

I am not better than you,
you are not better than me.
Both of us are better than this!
