What We Have In Common

She is white.  He is black.

She is from France.  He is from Canada.

She and he have known each other for over ten years.  They met through Laughter Yoga.  They had talked before, but recently they opened up to each other and said things they have never told anyone.  They discovered that they have more in common than they have in differences. It did not matter that she was white and from France, and he was black and from Canada. They had much in common.

He is me.  She shall remain anonymous.

This experience made me realize that no matter what our racial or religious differences; no matter what countries we are from; if we would suspend our judgments and talk to each other, really open up and share our thoughts, then we would discover that there is no reason for hatred because we all have more in common than we have in differences.
