Must we be less different to be more human

Is it just me or is that not the overwhelming message coming right now from so many places?

Must we really be less different if we want to be treated more human?

Is that not the underlying message of much of the political circus/ reality TV show we seem sentenced to?

Is that not the underlying message of so much legislation in so many states that seek to make poverty a crime? Must someone really deserve to eat before we allow him to eat?

Is that not the underlying message of our national fetish to police our bathrooms?

Is that not the underlying message of our crusade to build walls to protect us.

Is that not the underlying message of a presidential candidate who offers to pay legal fees for those who commit assault to “protect” his rallies?

Is that not the underlying message of the claim that all Moslems are alike and because some are murderers none can come here even those fleeing the threat of murder in their own countries?

Is that not the underlying message of Republican legislators who vow not to suffer the success of a black president?

And is it not the underlying message of much of what passes as mental health reform?

Has it really gotten to that point? Must we really be less different to be treated as more human? Are we not all different and still human?

Are we not????
