Today two cultures, two races, and two peoples come together. Today, we will set aside our differences and combine our similarities. Today we will throw down our devilish ways, we will demolish our discriminate thoughts, and we will become one civilization. Why must we set ourselves apart from themselves, why must we form gangs? Has the world created for us all transformed itself into a living hell? Yes it has. But, it doesn't have to be that way. The answer is so simple. Don't discriminate towards those who do not look like you. Don't beat on innocent little children, because they are of another nationality. We are of different nationalities, not of different races. We are not races, but we are many nationalities. We are not supposed to set ourselves apart, but come together. We are not supposed to shoot up someone's house because they are black or white or brown or yellow or whatever. Today, there are hundreds of ways to take someone's life, but none to give it back to them. The only way we can save our precious earth for our next of kin is to set an example, to show our children how to coexist among people who do not always resemble them. We are all capable of accomplishing peace, but only a certain few of us, are capable of using this ability.
