Difference without Division

prunus-branchesDiversity within a society does not have to be problematic. It can be a source of richness and enjoyment.

We can recognize and enjoy differences, but we must be careful not to exaggerate their importance or solidify our differences.

When we do, we easily lose sight of our shared humanity, and divide ourselves up into categories of us and them, higher and lower, better and worse.
