We are all surrounded by people who discriminate against other people because of their religion, race or sexual orientation. What do you say to a person who makes a derogatory remark about a person based not on who they truly are but one of the above? I try very hard to not judge people and since I would not have anything kind to say in a situation like this, I just choose to ignore it. It is their lesson to learn. It takes some people longer than others to realize we are all the same. We come from the same place. Nobody is better than anyone else. I truly do not understand how one's skin color, who they pray to, or who they choose to love makes them less of a person. When it comes to ignorance and bigotry, I believe the answer is COMPASSION and Love. Give both freely and the world will be a much better place.
Love and Peace, Barb
