The Bridge To WE

We are much more alike than different.

We are both human beings.

I may be female while you are male but we both breathe air into our lungs.

You may be gay while I am straight but we still crave human touch.

I may be black while you are white but we both need water to survive.

You may be poor while I am wealthy but we both crawled before we walked.

I may be a veteran while you are a pacifist but we both love our country.

You may speak one language while I speak another but we both understand a smile.

I may be an athlete while you are a spectator but we both love the sport.

You may have a Ph.D. while I have a grade school education but we both value knowledge.

I may play the piano while you may sing but we share a love for music.

You may be happy while I am sad but we both cry tears.

I may like to travel while you prefer to be at home but we both appreciate the beauty of our world.

You may be an intellectual while I am developmentally challenged but both our brains are wired to connect.

I may be single while you are married but we both want to be loved.

You may be a writer while I am a reader but we share a fondness for words.

I may create with my hands while you create with your mind but we both value a job well done.

You may be a vegan while I am a carnivore but we both love a great meal.

I may be old and you may be young but we both value life.

You may be tall while I am diminutive but we both reach for new heights.

I may be spiritual while you are religious but we both embody the divine.

You may be a parent while I am childless but we both value the future of humanity.

I may be Indigenous while you are an immigrant but we are now both Americans.

Can you see the YOU in Me?

Can I see the ME in You?

There is a WE.

It’s on this bridge where our healing begins.
