"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."
~ Marian Anderson (1897-1993), singer ~

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."
~ John F. Kennedy ~

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.
Stop the hate.
Love one another.

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful citizens
can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that
ever has."
~ Margaret Mead ~

"You must be the change you wish to see in the world."
~ Gandhi ~
