A picture worth a million words

I was walking in one of the school’s halls when I noticed 3 students walking and talking in such harmony. I couldn’t help asking them if I could take a picture and post it on our school’s blog. They asked me why, and I explained that their three natural hair colors – blonde, black, and red – reminded me of how diverse this country is. I thought to myself that these three kids were so much at ease with each other: no tension or animosity, just the way it was meant to be.

Other students saw that happening and asked why was I taking the picture. I told them that I just wanted to show that although we were created in different shades and colors, harmony was intended to govern our coexistence. I asked them to keep that in mind as they grow up and not let adults change this concept. So now more kids wanted to be in the picture.

  1. What a great observation Mr. Sabra! When I was a freshman in high school I had two close friends, one was Mormon and one was Jehovah Witness. My aunt asked how it is we could be friends considering we had such different religious backgrounds (I’m Episcopalian). I simply answered that we just don’t talk about religion, it’s not what brought us together as friends. Isn’t it amazing that we can just care about each other as human beings without the labels?
