― Toni Morrison


There is something gorgeously unique about the concept of humanity.
In the word humanity, there is no Jew, Christian, Buddhist, Hindu, or Muslim.
In the word humanity, there is no young or old
Black or white
Male or female
In the word humanity, there is no rich or poor
Educated or non-educated
In the word humanity, there is no beauty or ugliness
In the word humanity, there is no American, Mexican, French, Polynesian, Korean, African, Australian, Russian or German.
In the word humanity, there is no lucky or unlucky.
There is no you or me
In the word humanity...there is only us.
Us: a whole species coexisting.
So when we look into each other's eyes, all we see is human.


The author's comments:

This was inspired by a lot of frustration about the deep divisions between human beings. We are ALL human.
