When hate becomes acceptable

Lincoln quote - TheFarmersInTheDell.com

When hate becomes acceptable, we are all doomed.

Why is there an unwritten rule that says “if I am different from you, I am unacceptable and if you are different from me, you are unacceptable.”

Why is it that we’ve become so numb to human tragedy?  Terrible violence just becomes ANOTHER shooting, ANOTHER terror attack, ANOTHER hate crime, another, another another…

Why is it that in this great, big, wide, wonderful world of ours, we cannot find enough room to live as neighbors and friends?

Love me or leave me be… but do not destroy me.

One thought on “When hate becomes acceptable

  1. Definitely agreeing with you here. It’s as though hate crimes and discrimination against others have become the norm rather than the exception – and that’s one of the saddest things about today’s world.
