VS / US

I hope you’ll take a minute to watch this video.  I discovered it one night when I was flipping through the channels and I landed on the final 25 minutes of The Color Purple.  I hadn’t seen that movie since it came out, but I remembered how much I enjoyed it, so I watched.  When the movie was finished, this video came on as a commercial. After I saw it,  I quickly went online to find out what “EndHate at BeProud” was all about.

I think at the core of who we are as humans – and at the core of who we are as children of God – I think we all want to end hate.  None of us like violence.  None of us want to see any negative ism of any kind – be it racism, sexism, homophobia, ageism, absolutism, whatever tears down another human being.  I think at the core of who we are as humans – and at the core of who we are as children of God – I think we all really want to be people who spread love, acceptance, tolerance, hope.

One of my closet friends happens to also be a wonderful therapist.  Erin has a way of helping others see that more often than not there is room in our world for “both/and” rather than “either/or” … “both/and” rather than “my way or the highway.”  Please watch this short inspiring video and see if it helps us all to promote the “US” among us, rather than us “versus” them.

Peace friends,

Chuck
