I am not that good with words, but I am going to say what needs to be said.

Some of you may be tired of seeing and/or reading these types of articles , but until we begin to accept, respect, love and support each other we won't stop fighting.

We are all of the same species, we all live in the same universe, in the same Solar System, on the same planet. We all breathe the same air, walk the same earth, eat from the same ground. So why don't we act like it? Everybody wants to be respected and treated equally, but yet nobody acts that way.

We are different; we always have been and always will be. However, different shouldn't divide us, but unify us because different is an asset.
--- Elizabeth Margo

There are so many problems on this planet, but we can't start solving them until we solve this one. For this Earth to be what it once was again there first needs to be peace and unity between us, humans.

Unity is strength, division is weakness.
--- Swahili Proverb

How much more time? How much more time will it take for us to realize that we'll get nowhere through hate and discrimination? How many lives have to be taken and souls lost for us to understand that we need to come together if we want to live in harmony? Wouldn't it be nice to wake up one day and actually feel free?

I want you to imagine what would it feel like to wake up afraid everyday. Afraid to go out because somebody will beat you up based on something that you cannot choose to be, you just are. We cannot choose the color of our skin, our sexuality, our nationality, our gender etc.. We are born with it and we should be proud of it because those things make us beautiful.

Our true nationality is mankind.
--- H.G. Wells

I won't pretend to know what's it like for people of color, because I know and admit that I don't, but I'll talk of things that I do know about. We (Caucasian people) have always had it easy and "white privilege" is real, always has been. We invaded their home land like it was our's to begin with, and they welcomed us like one of their own, and we pay them back, how? By saying and doing immoral and inhumane things to people who accepted us.

We are the bad ones here. We are the ones who start with the wars, hate, discrimination and disrespect. We talk of equality, but we don't know the first thing about it. We should be ashamed of ourselves.

We have to open up our minds and become aware of the fact that we are all human. We are all mortal. We all have only one chance. We have only one life to live and this is how we choose to live it. The hate is doing nothing else but getting us killed.

When you discriminate against anyone, you discriminate against everyone.
--- Alan Dershowitz

It is time to become united once and for all and fight together to make life better for our descendants, our children, our grandchildren and so on. This is our chance to start helping each other evolve into better versions of ourselves. This is our chance to become the person that our kids can look up to with pride. All lives will start to matter once black lives do.

  • Respect.
  • Acceptance.
  • Support.
  • Love.
  • Peace.
  • Unity.
No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background or his religion. People learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.
--- Nelson Mandela
