I was sitting at an intersection today while letting another car go ahead of me and it hit me, Today was a day that history was made. When we sit in our cars and help other vehicles by flagging them, guiding them out to safety, we don’t always see them. We don’t see what they look like or who they are with. We just see a Car in need and we help them. We provide Compassion to them. It doesn’t matter what they look like or who they choose to spend their time with, we just help. Wouldn’t the world be a better place if we only seen people as people?
Instead we see black, white, Hispanic, gay, straight, boy or girl. I can’t help but imagine how great this world could be if we could all just see people instead of their outer appearance or sexuality. Whether you agree with today’s decision or not you have to admit one thing. Today is a day that history was made! Today is the day that will be in textbooks many years down the road. Or great-grandchildren will be reading about the civil rights movement of 2015!
Do you remember reading in history class about slavery and how slavery became non-existent? I remember reading these stories of whippings of human people just because they were black and a slave with tears in my eyes, because how could a human do such a thing to another human being. Don’t we all bleed the color red from our veins?
I remember laughing as I learned that woman did not always have the right to vote, that somehow we were less equal by our difference in chromosomes from those of the male species. Aren’t woman smart enough to educate themselves and form an opinion on who is to become president? of course we are..
We are all people. We all love. We all care. We all hurt. We all bleed. We all cry. We can all Marry. We do not need to hate. We do not need to judge. We do not need to fight. We need to have compassion. We need to love. We need to look at each other like the cars on the road, as people who are in need of kindness, support and encouragement. We are all equal. We are all people.
