When we turn to each other, and not on each other, that’s victory. When we build each other and not destroy each other, that’s victory. Red, yellow, brown, black and white - we’re all precious in God’s sight. Everybody is somebody.
We are each not other’s “keepers,” we are each other’s brothers and sisters. And it is in the struggle and service with our brothers and sisters, individually and collectively, that we find the meaning of life.
Our flag is red, white and blue, but our nation is a rainbow - red, yellow, brown, black and white - and we’re all precious in God’s sight. America is not like a blanket - one piece of unbroken cloth, the same color, the same texture, the same size. America is more like a quilt - many patches, many pieces, many colors, many sizes, all woven and held together by a common thread... Even in our fractured state, all of us count and all of us fit somewhere.
