When did being nice stop being right?
Why do we no longer respect others for their beliefs when they’re not the same as ours?
How did we move from seeing each other as a friend to seeing everyone as an enemy?
How dare we demand for ourselves what we will not give to others?
We humans are sharing an incredibly small planet. We are all in this together. We have no place to run or hide.
This big blue marble we all live on is our only home, and we need to take care of it and all its inhabitants.
Human correctness is big-hearted, generous-thinking, respectful, and loving. It is not weakness; it is strength!
It’s a strength to see each other as worthy, even when we disagree on things.
It’s a strength to see each other as human, no matter the color of our skin.
It’s a strength to work together to help others who may be suffering.
It’s a strength to promote harmony and collaboration.
One of the reasons I write (and read) here on LinkedIn is that I love collaborating across borders, cultures, and languages. We are finding out a little more each day about the lives of people half a world away, in countries we’re often totally unfamiliar with. We are seeing that our views are just that: ours. We have the ability to touch human hearts, minds, and souls halfway across the world!
We are forging relationships with real people — some like us, some not like us. We are learning and growing. We are connecting. We are waging peace.
Individually, we are one drop.
Together, we are an ocean.
Let’s raise our voices all across this small planet, and continue to forge the links that keep us strong and loving.
