Interracial Marriage gives peace

Human beings are constantly in wars. We're in wars inside and outside. Wars take places because of ignorance of the real truth. We fail to see that we're all living life forms. We fail to see we're on the same boat sailing toward the same destination.

More often than not, we only see the physical differences among us: the colors of our skins, the different religions we believe in, the choice of foods we choose to eat, different parts of the world we come from and thus different cultures we are brought up with. There SEEMS to be so many differences among us...

Instead of embracing the beautiful diversity of human kinds, we choose to alienate with each other.

Some people believe, one way to help reduce the conflicts of races, religions, and cultures is to encourage interracial marriage.

Babies and children born of interracial parents usually see things in parental love rather than parents' skins or the traditional costumes they wear.

"I love my mommy, I love my daddy. Who are they? They're my mommy and daddy! I love them."

"My dad is red, my mom's white. My granddad is black, my grandmother's yellow."

"So much love! So colourful! I love them all. I love all colours!"

To keep things simple, it's that simple.

Eventually all single races will move on to another realm and newer generations with gray scales who blend all races, all religions, all cultures, and all backgrounds are here to stay.

And the result? Quite likely a more peaceful world and less wars.

It's much easier then to focus on the truly important things in life.

Are we all in the same boat sailing toward the same destination?

Yes, we are.

Dear John,

Hi,how are you? hope you are doing well.

This story remind me of a conversation with my 4 years old boy.

One lovely morning, when I trying to teach him about the country he live-the name, location ,whether and races and also the difference from the other country .He listened quietly and he said to me "mum, we all living in the earth."

Well, I hope that this simple and undiscriminating thought will follow everyone from their childhood to adulthood.

All the best. :>

Dear Ms Tan,

Yes. We're all living on earth. Human beings should learn to know better and to manage our mother earth more responsibly.

Happy rabbit new year!

Hi Sylvia,

Thank you for the great poem. They must have meant something truly noble and great; but unfortunately they're a little beyond my comprehension. Ha.

Wish everyone peace from within. Oh, peace can come from inside, outside. We just have to work harder!

Cheers, John
