We live in a world where peace does not go out to all people of the earth, and neither does love. We get caught up in the things like gender, sex, appearance, fame, money and status to name a few. People ask questions like, “Where do we come from?”, “Where are we going when we die?”, “What is the purpose of life?” and “Who am I?”. Still others ask more questions like, “What is that person’s gender?”, “Is that person female or male?”, “Who do they love?”. We humans put such weight on these things, but I think we are all missing the point completely.
Can you just imagine for a moment a world where no one judges, or hates? What would be the result of a world where that happens? There would be no war, no bullies and no need for us to have jails or hand out penalties. You may be thinking, “Well, that’s great, but it’s not the reality.” No, it’s not, and that’s sad. But we can go with what we have. What do we have? We have the ability to control our own actions and to make our own decisions. We cannot control the actions of others, what they say and do. However, what someone else does can’t control what we do. If others are making fun of the LGBTQ community, discriminating against other races or cultures, or putting anyone down in any kind of way, does that mean we should join them in their taunts? I would go as far as to say that we should not just hold back from joining in, but also defend those who are being made the objects of this unwarranted judgement.
