No Man is An Island Unto Himself

A Walk Along the Beach

What a wonderful, beautiful world this would be if we could learn to set aside, or at least, put less focus on the differences that seem to divide us, and put more focus and emphasis on the commonalities that could and should unite us.

We do not have to agree totally with everything that people do or say, but by the same token, we should not allow our disagreements and differences to make us mortal enemies.

May God speed the day when we learn to bury our weapons of pride, egotism, self-righteousness, prejudice, hatred, bigotry, racism, and the like, and vow to war against one another no more. May God hasten that day!

Call me a dreamer, but I dream of the long-awaited day when all of God’s children – ALL OF GOD’S CHILDREN – can sit down together at the banqueting table of brotherhood and sisterhood. I dream of the day when all of us will be able to join hands across the table with the full and complete realization and understanding that hatred only begets more hatred, but LOVE conquers all.

The truth of the matter is that I need you, and you need me. If we are to continue to survive as the human race, we must begin to realize that no man is an island unto himself. TOGETHER WE SHALL STAND. We shall be victorious TOGETHER, regardless of our race, our culture, our background, or any other wall that seemingly is a barrier between us. However, if we choose to remain divided, our “little islands” will soon be washed away by the passing winds and waves of time.
