The moment that you realise that life is more than just getting ahead. It is getting to the top, and having your mates there with you, that is the moment that you realise that it doesn’t have to be lonely at the top.
The moment that you realise that you are stronger as a group, that is the moment you realise that there is no glory in being solo.
And the moment you realise that the only Holy commandment given to us is that we love our neighbours as we love ourselves, This is the moment we pause and lend a helping hand, a listening ear, an encouraging cheer, a welcoming smile or an accepting hug.
The moment we realise, is the moment we truly defeat SEGREGATION AND HATE.
