~ Society seems to put people into categories or groups, and judges them from those groups. Christian, atheists, believers, non-believers, male, female, republicans, democrats, conservatives, liberals, blacks, whites, Hispanics, poor, middle class, rich.
~ When someone achieves a new height, society labels them as the first Hispanic to achieve it, or the first black, or the first Mormon, or the first woman.
~ Perhaps, one day, we’ll aspire to be like those who achieve goals and goodness, not because they belong to a specific group, but solely because they are an inspiring individual human being.
Side note: Perhaps I’ll be the first Italian-American woman who aspired to be like her dog and achieved it … unconditional love. 😉 But, I’d rather be one of many individual human beings who loves unconditionally, like dogs do.
