On Culture

via Daily Prompt: Culture

Call me a starry eyed fool, but I hope one day we can wake up in a world where each and every culture will be celebrated, and not seen as a threat to their own culture or beliefs.

Where “Merry Christmas” or “Happy Hanukkah” isn’t any more or less offensive than “Happy Holidays”, and people understand that wishing someone one or the other is a way of spreading their version of positive energy.

Where “All Lives Matter” isn’t seen as racist, but instead as a unifying thought, and people understand that it’s these various labels that are hurting.

Where “gay” is okay, where “not gay” is okay, where “not okay with gay” is okay, given that each lacks in “hate, rudeness, or violence” which I think we all agree are not okay.

Where wanting security isn’t seen as an attack on others, but rather as a positive step in self-defense and prevention of danger. But oh, if only if we could be rid of all forms of danger, then security would be unnecessary.

Where pride in your culture isn’t seen as “supremacy”.

Where we celebrate the differences of culture, of thought, of belief, in our fellow human and strive to learn from those differences, instead of divide and denounce for something as simple as a difference in thought.

Call me a starry eyed fool, but I hope one day we can wake up in a world where true equality exists.
