Why must I jump
through all these hoops?
Why must I be judged
by society?
"Celebrate diversity"
You there.....
Be like us
Do as we do
Don't embarrass us.
Teach the kids to
t o l e r a t e
forgetting to shake a hand,
not making proper eye contact,
talking too loud,
should I go on?
Why is it I must 'just be me'
but I also must assimilate to be
A C C E P T A B L E?
Why am I not part of
the tolerated Diversity?



"We each have our own way of living in the world, together we are like a symphony.
Some are the melody, some are the rhythm, some are the harmony
It all blends together, we are like a symphony, and each part is crucial.
We all contribute to the song of life."
...Sondra Williams

We might not always agree; but TOGETHER we will make a difference.
