My “Secret Subject” is:
February is a month where we celebrate love. So pick one of these (your choice) and talk about it: What people of different religions have in common OR what people of different sexes have in common OR what people of different races have in common OR what people of different socio-economic status have in common.

I am probably not the best one to get this prompt. I feel that it is worthy of going to great depths with, but my answer, that immediately comes to mind, is very simple. I know Karen well enough, to know, that she was not hoping for simple. She was hoping for depth and reasoning. I do not seem to have any at the moment.
I am going to choose to address what people of a different race/ethnicity have in common. The answer is basically everything. Yes, there are differences. We are all different, and that is what keeps life interesting. At the core though, we are all human beings. We all bleed red. We all have the same body parts. We all have problems, weaknesses, strengths, talents, and minds. We are all people who want to be loved, and who want to love. We all want to have friendships. We all have insecurities. We are all the same, even with all our differences.
We have families and friends. We enjoy laughing, We dislike being sad. We think we have the best parents, or the worst parents. We all have fears. We all have the ability to do great things. We are all capable of being lazy. We are all human. Period.
People who look at another human being, and see their skin color, and think less of them because of it, are idiots. The skin color may be different, but the humanity is the same. The worth is the same. The equality is the same. We are all worthy of love, honor, respect, and equality.
I do not use the word hate often, but I hate racists. If you are a racist, I hate you.

I never understood Sting's hit song "I hope the Russians love their children too" - isn't that the number one thing all the people have in common?ReplyDelete
I didn't have any expectations in terms of an answer to this prompt. But I do have to say that sometimes "simple" says just as much as anything in depth.ReplyDelete
Sometimes simple is better than depth. You covered it allReplyDelete
I hate racists too! I just don't understand people that have hatred in their hearts for people they don't even know! Life is too short.ReplyDelete
