United we stand, divided we fall

Often we are so consumed with embracing everything that separate’s us from one another and makes us unique. I am all for uniqueness and how we all have our specialties but I wonder what the world would be like if we celebrated what unites us instead. We all suffer, we are all trying to do the best we can where we are. The division begins when we start comparing ourselves or deciding that we are right and someone else is wrong. I am making an effort to stay united with the people in my life by paying extra attention when I fall into division. I HOPE I can recognize when I am being divisive and instead choose to accept others whole heartedly and stay united.

Walk a mile with someone who believes differently from you.
The world will know peace when you can stand for them too.
