Our Diversity Our Dignity

Don’t think too low or too high of yourself.
Be confident but not arrogant,
Be humble but not ignorant.
Adore others but don’t be a sycophant.
Don’t force a fish to fly,
Don’t spur the sparrows to swim.
Don’t compare an ant to an Elephant.
No one is better than you.
No one is inferior to you.
No one is White and no one is Black.
I mix my coffee with milk,
not because of their colours
but the uniqueness of their flavours.
Use a white marker on a whiteboard
and a black pen on a blackboard,
see the essence of diversity and inclusion.
We are more than tags and labels.
We all are exquisite expressions of God.
You are not the colour of your skin,
You are the graces you carry within.
Your value is measured by how you value others.
True wealth is not about affluence but influence.
We are all sacred and significant.
Different flavours, different colours,
There is dignity in diversity.

  1. The colour question is a plague. It is unbelievable how it has impacted our lives and the mess we have made of it.
    It’s a crazy world out there. To think that people can’t live with diversity. People really don’t know how. One human being living in fear of the other human being.

    The world needs to read this wonderful message that addresses our diversity and our dignity.

  2. Big need my friend. The collective mental state of my own country is in tatters. It’s quite serious especially the pressure to he in a certain way. Depression levels are very high and sadly the professional and affordable help is not readily available.

        1. I think Covid has made mental health challenges more rampant all over the world. People now have to deal with a lot of draining issues. We need to keep sharing messages of hope and also lend a hand every way we can.

          We all need somebody to lean on. Let’s keep lifting ourselves in prayers

  3. “We all are equisite expressions of God” Yes, indeed. We are uniquely created by our Heavenly Father. Thus, we should embrace, accept, love and respect our uniqueness. Great job, Adel! Very beautiful and uplifting. God bless you always! πŸ’—
