Explore the value of Equality
We all should know that diversity makes for a rich tapestry, and we must understand that all the threads of the tapestry are equal in value no matter what their color.
We become not a melting pot but a beautiful mosaic. Different people, different beliefs, different yearnings, different hopes, different dreams.
Nobody is superior, nobody is inferior, but nobody is equal either. People are simply unique, incomparable. You are you, I am I.
We may have different religions, different languages, different colored skin, but we all belong to one human race. We all share the same basic values.
The craving for equality can express itself either as a desire to pull everyone down to our own level or as a desire to raise ourselves up along with everyone else.
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
As you grow up, always tell the truth, do no harm to others, and don’t think you are the most important being on earth. Rich or poor, you then can look anyone in the eye and say, ‘I’m probably no better than you, but I’m certainly your equal.

Nimal Welgama, Sri -Lanka
Para existir igualdade é fundamental termos uma visão do outro pelo o que ele é, e não pela descrição que pessoas que gostam de falar demais dizem. To be equality is essential to have a vision of the other for what he is, and not the description that people who like to talk too much say.
