Some Inspiration! Maybe All We Need is One Vision?

One Vision {Extended Mix} — Queen

Reflection:

I’m not suggesting that we could all ever agree on the same belief systems or share in one religion or one view of thinking or ideology or politics– we have enough problems just getting Boston Red Sox fans and New York Yankees fans to sit down in the same room without wanting to strangle each other to death.  But perhaps that’s the point I am trying to make– that we focus so much on what divides us as people that we forget the most important things that actually pull us together– like a common sense of humanity, common sense of decency and respect and the belief that somehow, somewhere, there is something greater than all of us directing the show.

We get so caught up in the details of labeling each other as this or that or the other thing that we lose sight of who we really are underneath all that labeling.  We lose that “One Vision” that we are human underneath it all and maybe we need to be more focused on the fact that we each have a heart, a soul, flesh, bones….  Essentially we are all fundamentally the same and we need to start thinking about treating each other with a lot more solidarity and brother and sisterhood.  Maybe the “One Vision” we are looking for or appealing to is the vision of common humanity.
