Terry O’Neill, Lake Geneva resident and activist offers his comments:
Life can be simple when understood, and complex when it is not. Everything is different and yet the same. Like no two sunsets or snowflakes are ever the same, but we all know one when we see one. In a similar manner, we are all different and yet we are all the same. It is all in how we see it. What we see as different, divides us. What we see as the same, unites us.
So instead of seeing the world as “them” versus “us”, remember “them” is an important and necessary part of “us,” for diversity is good when such diversity is considered a necessary part of the whole, and held together with a greater feeling and understanding of oneness.
