Just a very short and easy term learned in school. But is it really what they say it is? Is it necessary we are bound to see the margins based on some irrelevant basis?
Humanity and humans. Two terms, quite difficult to differentiate. Yet as basic as it gets. Human is what we are, humanity is what we do, or rather should be doing. I’ve seen and met a lot of people. Not a lot, but yeah, a handful. Each and every one is unique in their own way.
Every person is a like a color. Some may be a different shade of the same color, some maybe a completely different color. It’s really amazing to see that each and everyone is so different and yet connected and united.
Everyone has their own taste, their own thinking, liking, experiences, inferences, sayings, actions and aesthetics. No two minds are the same. We must accept this and see it as a bunch of m&m’s rather than a packet of mentos. Everyone is so beautiful in their own way, and it’s who they are! One should never change what color they are, because that makes it harder for them to stand out in the same shade of the same color pack which wasn’t meant to happen.
Even after immense differences and similarities, we are connected throughout the world by no other means but humanity and love. It knows no language or religion or caste or color or background or origin, it knows human, it knows humanity.
Embrace the colorful world, the people, the flowers, the animals, the sky and your own identity. Be proud of what unique color you are, shine!
Close your eyes , but open them too. Calm your mind , but use it too! Save your soul but let it live too!
