Together As One

As a small boy I would love to hear my Dad talk to me about all matter of subjects. A sky that has no beginning and no end, a God, how the Church is in your head and your heart not in bricks and mortar, the colour of your skin. He was a great teacher for an adoring son. He always used to tell me that when you cut a white man and when you cut a black man, they will both bleed the same red blood. He taught me that I should never judge a person by the colour of their skin but that I should look at the person. He taught me stuff that has served me well throughout my life.

Why is it that there is fear and prejudice in all races and colour. White and black, brown, yellow and red. If there were no countries, no borders, if we were just one world respecting each others differences then there would be no wars. No one country would be looking to rule the world, and peace would reign. Of course this isn’t going to happen, not yet anyway. If we could respect the different cultures, accept each others differences, help each other and understand that all that most people want from life is to care for their family and to live a peaceful life, then we could have the most beautiful world. A world of peace, love, tolerance, and cooperation. Heaven on Earth.
