I think Depeche Mode sang it best :
“People are people
So why should it be
You and I should get along so awfully
So we’re different colors
And we’re different creeds
And different people have different needs
It’s obvious you hate me
Though I’ve done nothing wrong
I’ve never even met you so what could I have done
I can’t understand
What makes a man
Hate another man
Help me understand”
Right now , in America, we are coming apart at the seams. I don’t usually get PC, but I just want to point this out – you , me, Bob down the street, the cashier at the store, every professional athlete, every politician, every man, woman , and child no matter what parts you were born with and choose to recognize –
UNDER OUR SKIN – WE ARE ALL EXACTLY THE SAME
Crazy = right? But seriously think about it. We all have organs, blood, veins, bones. We are all the same, just wrapped in different packages.
If ice cream came in a box instead of a bowl or a cone- would you still eat it?
Damn right you would – who is gonna say no to ice cream? Its the same concept – same on the inside – different way of packaging it. Ice Cream comes with nuts or without, chocolate or vanilla, sugar free or smooth and creamy. So many different varieties – it is awesome!!! It is literally the beauty of ice cream. What is your favorite flavor? Mine is black raspberry or reverse chip ( chocolate ice cream with white chocolate chips, it is soo hard to find, if you do find it – do not deny yourself!!!)
I think we should look at the world as our ice cream social . All these different varieties . And you know what ? If you don’t like one flavor, try a different one , change your add ins or your topping. Throw some whip cream on that shit and hope for a big enough spoon.
If we as a people could stop being so focused on what we hate about everyone and start focusing on what we love about people , just imagine how great things could be for everyone.
So , instead of looking at each other how we usually do – lets start envisioning which flavor we are instead. If anything – its gonna put a smile on your face!
