Golden Rule

Three years ago I was invited to join a group of individuals that were of diverse faiths. These wonderful people each have different beliefs and worship individually according to their faiths traditions. One thing that they all share is their faith's version of the Golden Rule. This is the one thing that each faith group has in common. From this one strong principle we have been able to build bridges of understanding, respect, support and kindness, to treat others the way we would like to be treated; and to treat others the way we would like them to treat our children or our parents.
