    Everyone Is Different!

    Viva la difference! If we were all alike, you'd be balding like me. Why would I look at you? I could see me ia mirror. To think of kissing someone who looks like me leaves a certain taste in my mouth. I prefer to view your unique contribution to life and the universe as a...

    I Love Unconditionally

    I really don't care about physical appearance, race, creed, gender, sexual orientation and political views. I respect others, I treat people the way I want to be treated equally. You don't have to label yourself. I judge people by what's truly on the inside of their heart. And if...

    Respect Should Be the Basis of All Human Relations

    Respect, a word that has lost much of its value in this modern, materialistic world, should be revived in all human relations. Many relationships, whether personal, business, platonic or casual, go wrong because of lack of respect.  Respect means treating the other person...

    We Are All Unique

    As long as we are seeking the best in eachother it's all good but I have a problem with political correctness that dictates that in order not to offend Group A we have to cancel a privilege Group B has enjoyed for centuries long before Group A came along. Example over here, last...

    Accepting Despite My Beliefs

    Understanding who I am and where I am headed is a mystery at this point in my life. I have always believed in the traditional monotheistic G-d of my ancestors. I really, really, believed that life was a response to a set of commandments. Free will is given, but we are free to...

    The Same Can Be Boring!

    I do enjoy being around others who are different than me! I like it when a person brings something new to the group. That's most of the fun! :-) I do admit that by different, I don't mean rude or mean people. They are different from me, true. But they're highly...

    Diversity

    It makes the world go 'round. I try to be respectful and open minded until people who are different than me try to push their beliefs on me. Then we're on for contensious debate.

    Yeah.

    Our individual differences make us who we are as people and I'd rather embrace that than fight it.

    What Difference Does It Really Make?

    So someone is different from you or your family. So what? That's what makes the world go 'round. If the entire world was the same from coast to coast, shore to shore,life would be incredibly boring - or there would be no reason to travel anywhere. No reason to say My-country...

    We Are All Just People

    I don't care if some one looks different or dresses 'weird'. Or If they have had a bad past or other people have already condemned them. I like to make up my mind for myself.  I try to give everyone the same respect i would like to have.
