The Right to Be Different

Diversity Pictures, Images and PhotosIt's a topic that's been challenged for centuries. For the mere differences in beliefs, practice of faith, religion, sexual preference, and skin color that has been the motive for discrimination, abuse, wars and even murder. All of it based on the judgment of another's liberty to be dissimilar than another. I've never understood the logic behind condemning, especially when it’s scrutiny of diversity. I genuinely believe that it's a society's multiplicity of preferences are what universally moves our society to a more advanced, loving, kind and peaceful place. It's a fact that communities who are most accepting of a variety of choices, traditions, and religions maintain the most peace. After all, it's cruelty, viciousness and brutality that we need to be condemning, not the love and joy of another that is pursued in a different manner than our own.  

"We have become not a melting pot but a beautiful mosaic. Different people, different beliefs, different yearnings, different hopes, different dreams."  ~Jimmy Carter
