I don't understand why so many people hate others,

We are all human beings,

We all live on earth,

We all have beating hearts,

But it seems some of those hearts are cold.

I believe that we are all equal,

No person is better than another.

Race, sex, religion, class, sexual orientation,

They shouldn't matter.

Just because someone is different

Doesn't mean they should be shunned by society,

Society should accept them and learn from them.

If there was more willingness to understand and accept,

I believe that the world would be a much happier place to live in.
