Embrace human unity.
Is it only the aged who remember these words: One nation under God, love your neighbor, do unto others as you would have done to you? Or live by the sword, die by the sword? Blessed are the peacekeepers? Forgive that you may be forgiven, etc.? To boil it down, Forgive and live a peaceful, loving, productive life.
Or, hate and die, a life of dissatisfaction, anger and pain.
I think instead of the prayer, "God bless America" it should be “God bless the world.” I think instead of country flags, we need a world flag, a flag representing unity. Unity of survival as a species, of love of the Earth as our home, and the shedding of self-interest, and the embracing of human unity.
Where did your grandparents and great-grandparents come from?
