Village of 100 people

Ever wondered about life through someone else’s eyes?  Many of us take the time to say we think about it, but have you ever really considered it?  Look at your life, what you have or don’t.  Consider who you are. Male, female, other…heterosexual, homosexual, somewhere between or more…black, white, red, brown…anything else you can name.  For those who are Christian and think that is the worlds dominate religion, people who think there are more races than the human race, those who feel only having one car or TV makes them poor. To those who have had to go without a meal and those who have never missed one. For those that our society recognizes your gender with pronouns and those who we don’t.  No matter your perspective, always remember someone else out there stands on different ground, has a different thought, thinks a different way, knows a different background, and remembers a different history. We are a world of people, meant to be there for one another. To assume anything different is to feel you deserve privilege. If you claim to be American, and live under those words “All men are created equal”, you have been charged to make sure that not only are they created that way, but they all have those “inalienable rights” we also associate with that document. You’ve heard the saying “walk a mile in their shoes”. Well how can you possibly walk it if you wont even take the time to put them on. At this point I feel like I’m rambling so I’m just going to post the link to this video and say please, at least take the time to listen to one another.

 

If the world was a village of 100 people…
