Respect diversity

11 March 2015, 13:41 Nathan Joseph

I'm me your you, I can't be you and you can't be me because God created us unique. Our culture differs Our perspectives in contrast We see things from different angles probably due to our religion, the family we come from, the background we were rise.

To me, my culture, religion, tradition and view is superb and I believe same with you too and due to these conflicting variables, we hardly agree with one another which is harmful to peaceful co-existence and detard us from enjoying and benefiting from symbiotic relationship. Should we continue like this?

For how long will you and I regard those above mention parameters of ours the best ? Domination will never be the solution, compromising would only solve our problem but for a while not permanent, why can't we settle for integration

? To comprehensively understand why God created us different and design some to be white, black, tall, short, Christian and Muslim Hindus some go for idols. Do you think God lack the power if he wishes to all make us Muslim or Christian

? To speak one language and to design us in one colour ? Don't you know that I need you to survive as much as u need me ? Your so important to me, and the world irrespective of our differences. If only we can respect our differences and know that we have a role to play in this world. Then we can bring down heaven here on earth. Even cat and dog now learn how to live together talk more of we humans.
