On the divisions between us

"There are two kinds of people in the world: Those who divide everybody into two kinds of people and those who don't."
Neil deGrasse Tyson
In light of this week's massacre of 9 people at a Charleston, SC church, these words are especially resonant to me. If only we spent less time focusing on our differences and more time opening up to - and learning from - each other.

If only.

I totally agree. If only. I really like this quote too!

The more we throw away resources, use up water, kill the planet and keep people in poverty, this "other" will never go away.

That is a great quote! So many divisions! Rich/poor; black/white; (or white/any other colour) them/us; my religion/your religion;

And the most dangerous one? Them/us.

If only, if only, we could all understand that there are human beings, we all have faults, we all have virtues. We all deserve respect.

If only.
