Explore the value of Unity
Much of the success of life depends upon keeping one's mind open to opportunity and seizing it when it comes.
Alice Foote MacDougall
Our happiness is completely and utterly intertwined with other people: family, friends, neighbors and the woman who you hardly notice who cleans your office.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
If we are to achieve a richer culture, rich in contrasting values, we must recognize the whole gamut of human potentialities, and so weave a less arbitrary social fabric, one in which each diverse human gift will find a fitting place.
If we could read the secret history of our enemies, we would find in each person's life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Within sorrow is grace. When we come close to those things that break us down, we touch those things that also break us open. And in that breaking open, we uncover our true nature.
An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place, or circumstance. The thread may stretch or tangle, but will never break.
The good we secure for ourselves is precarious and uncertain until it is secured for all of us and incorporated into our common life.
Difference is of the essence of humanity. Difference is an accident of birth and it should therefore never be the source of hatred or conflict. The answer to difference is to respect it. Therein lies a most fundamental principle of peace: respect for diversity.
We belong to the community. It is not the tailor alone who is the ninth part of a man; it is as much the preacher, and the merchant, and the farmer. Where is this division of labor to end? and what object does it finally serve? No doubt another may also think for me; but it is not therefore desirable that he should do so to the exclusion of my thinking for myself.
Henry David Thoreau
Archbishop Desmond Tutu

A Village Of One Rise!Submitted by Anonymous
Some days, I feel like a Village of One. There are many times in our life when we will have to choose between doing the safe and easy thing- or the harder, better thing. That sounds simple enough in theory, but as Martin Luther King Jr. said: "The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments...
Five And AliveSubmitted by Erica Eyer
I grew up very poor and with a single mom in the throws of addiction. Often there was no money for food, and I was hungry a lot. On my fifth birthday (1986), a couple close family members were invited to go to a park to celebrate my birthday. No cake, no presents, not a problem. Except for my auntie. ...

Lacey stood up and told her story. "It was our chance to be in the championship game the next day. If we lost, we'd be automatically eliminated from the competition.
