WOW, I just finished reading this thread to this point(save the posts made while writing this one). It amazes me to see how far the People of this
World have come to unity. I used to think we were never going to become united as a People and low and behold here it is. This thread proves me wrong
the World and its People are united. Unfortunately we are united in the hatred and disgust of each other.
I feel I have a unique perspective in that I was born in the United States, grew up in England, Germany, Austria, Bavaria, Spain, Italy, and France
with a period back in the U.S. between England and Germany. I came back to the U.S. to complete High School.
There is absolutely no difference between the People of this World regardless of the Country of origin. There are People of the same beliefs be it
peace loving hippies(no offense) to super patriots. There are haters and lovers everywhere. The only difference are the Governments, Religions, and
It has always been the Governments, Religions and Leaders of the World that make the rules for the imaginary boarders placed on a piece of paper and
called a map. It is the varied rules and regulations placed on the People of specific locations all over this globe. It is the Governments, Religions,
and Leaders that have caused war and conflict. It is them that pushed in and took over other areas surrounded by imaginary lines on the map. The
People? All People want to be happy and live their life with family and friends although some would like to live on their own away from all the
We People are all the same regardless of the location we live in. Yes, throughout history our cultures, our beliefs, our customs, etc., have separated
us but this is constant throughout the Globe. No one is better than any other, from the neighbor next door to the the Country on the other side of the
planet, from the colors of our skin to the Religious beliefs we hold, even what gender we are. We are People and the value needs to be redirected from
possessions be it money, land, or objects and placed on Life itself.
This constant bickering between "mine is better than yours" is not only redundant but getting really old. Every Person, Country, Religion, Culture,
has done negative things as well as positive things. Not one is better than another when Life is valued. We as a Global community need to grow up and
unite in a way that Human kind can all benefit by putting Life as its most valued commodity. This begins with People stopping the pushing of their
beliefs on others and respecting the differences we have as People.
