When a person reaches out to me in friendship I do not worry about the things that may be different between us such as religion, political views or our nationality. I just grab their hand in friendship and see them as my equal. There is enough bigotry, racism and religious hatred in the world and I choose not to be a part of it. It is far better to be a part of the solution than to be a part of the problem itself. We all are human and we all seek out the same basic things such as love, security and the means to support our selves and our family. We all want a better life for our children and a safer and more peaceful world for them to live in.
