often we're always so caught up in our own world, we sometimes forget about the existence of others. we forget that we live with people, and with people there is diversity. different backgrounds, different races, different religion, different beliefs, different perspectives. we're always too busy fighting for our right, too busy wanting people to accept us and too busy asking for tolerance- sometimes we should just take a step back and ask ourselves, are we asking more than what we give? or do we feel too superior to even aknowledge others? tolerance works both ways. you have to learn how to tolerate other people on order for people to tolerate you. only then will we attain peace.
