This photo represents a lot to me. I love how these different types of birds can so peacefully co-exist, even though their differences are enormous and obvious. Their color is different, their size is different, and their abilities are different. Some even boast a higher position on the log while others are content closer to the water. But even with all of those differences, they’re still so much more alike than they are different. For us humans, in the midst of this election season chaos, with our country seemingly more divided than I can remember, let us not forget that even though we may not look alike, talk alike, think alike or even share the same values, we can still respect one another, work together, live together and appreciate one another. We should use our differences to make us stronger, not to pull us apart.
“Culture makes people understand each other better. And if they understand each other better in their soul, it is easier to overcome the economic and political barriers. But first they have to understand that their neighbour is, in the end, just like them, with the same problems, the same questions.”
