Q: If you could teach everyone in the world one thing, what would it be?
October 19, 2013
I would teach everyone the value of unity if I could only teach one thing. The definition of Unity is the state of being one; oneness of mind, feeling, etc. Concord, connection, and peace are synonymous to unity; Disconnection, discord, and war are unity’s antonyms. In order to eliminate many issues within society and the world in general, everyone must live as one. Until we are united, resolutions for societal issues will never come; global issues will forever be left sitting on the back burner.
Abuse against women and hate crimes based on bias towards: Race, religion, disability, ethnicity, and sexuality run ramped throughout American society alone. Statistics show “over 22 million women in the U.S. have been raped in their lifetime.” Domestic abuse is another problem women face. “In 2011, there were 3,645 victims of racially motivated hate crimes. 1,480 were victims of anti-religious hate crimes. 1,572 victims were targeted due to a sexual-orientation bias. 939 were victims of ethnicity/national origin hate crimes. 61 had been victims of disability bias hate crimes.” Although it has improved throughout the years, women, minorities, etc, still experience inequality in the work force.
We are all united through the human race, instead of leaving it at this, we break people into sub groups based upon: race, religion, disability, etc. I think we should merely be aware of these sub group’s existences rather than focus on the differences stemming from them .When everyone learns and understands, we are all going through life together, we all leave similar bones when we die, regardless of race, religion, sexuality, etc. We are all human; we all deserve to be treated as such. When everyone unites as one race (the human race) the world and its inhabitants can begin to know peace, connection, and solve global issues.
