"As long as you keep a person
down, some part of you has to be down there to hold him down, so it means you cannot soar
as you otherwise might."
I first had the inspiration to put these pages together after reading a magazine that I received as a teacher. The name of the magazine is "Teaching Tolerance". I had never really thought about teaching tolerance before.
Of all of the myriad of valuable lessons I try to teach my students, tolerance, I thought, would be most valuable. Aren't bigotry and predjudice often based on ignorance and fear? Aren't the threads of golden truth that run through all the religions of the world the simple statement, "Love One Another"?
"Our most basic common link
is that we all inhabit this small planet. We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our
children's future. and we are all mortal."
We are all different. Yet we share
the same basic needs. Revel in your cultural, ethnic, religious, ability, gender
differences, while recognizing the commonality that we all share. Learn one thing everyday
about a culture or religion or ethnicity or ability or gender different from your own.
Teach others what you have learned.
"Never doubt that a small
group of thoughtful citizens
"You must be the change you
wish to see in the world."
