I posted this on social media awhile back, but in light of the ignorant and hateful teenagers who harassed a Native American Vietnam Veteran, it bears repeating...
Daily, I am astonished by the amount of hatred in this world. I do not understand or embrace it in any capacity.
Daily, I am inspired by the small acts of kindness I see, the people who push back against the hatred and bigotry. This I get. This I embrace.
Imagine a world drenched in shades of grey. Imagine a world with no light for the day, no dark for the night. It is within the greens of the grasses, the blues of the sky, the reds and yellows and pinks and purples of the flowers that we find beauty and appreciation.
The same can and should be said about the people, all the people, who populate this world. If we were all the same, we'd be surrounded by mirrors, carbon copies in the same shade of grey. This is not a world I would ever choose to live in. But I guess there is use for the haters after all. Without them, the true gems of the world wouldn't shine quite so bright.
