Diversity

Imagine if there were no mountains, no hills, only flat land; only one type of tree, only one color of flower.  Imagine if all people had the same eye color, same hair color, same skin color, spoke the same language.

Fortunately, there are almost infinite varieties of landscapes, trees, flowers, people, languages. Each of us is unique. No-one else has my combination of physical attributes and my combination of experiences that make me who I am today and the exact same opinions and knowledge that I do. Isn’t that wonderful?

If everyone were the same, it would be like living in a gray world or like watching TV in black and white. It would be like looking out my window and seeing no mountains, no blue sky, no fifty shades of green in the trees alone. I wouldn’t want to live in a world like that. I love the diversity in this one. I like having color in my life. I like having a diverse group of friends in my life who keep me thinking, and discussing, and talking about anything and everything.

How about you?
