No More Labels

With all the craziness occurring in the world today, we forget that it all starts with labels.  We attach labels to things and people and beliefs.  From there emotions get attached and invested, and we hang on tight – right or wrong.  It blinds us to the fact that all people are more than what we see and that all people are not so different from one another after all.

My daughter showed me the following video. Please, please watch this.  It may be titled, “I Am NOT Black, You Are NOT White” but it is so much more.  It should be titled, “NO MORE LABELS” as it speaks so clearly to this issue.

People are not labels; for the sake of our future we must learn to see ourselves in each other.
