Who somebody else loves and wants to be with should have no effect on your life whatsoever. Who somebody else thinks has great ideas and would be a great leader should have no effect on you whatsoever. What kind of music or food someone likes should have no effect on your whatsoever.

We should accept that all of us are different and have different likes and dislikes and that is absolutely okay. I wrote just the other day about how tired I am of all the intolerance of differing opinions anymore. It is like we are not allowed to disagree.and if you do you cannot be friends with those who don't think the same as you. We are very quick to holler for boycotts and protests because we don't agree.

Today is International Day for Tolerance. Let's try for just this one day to be focused on being more tolerant and maybe it will lead into another day and another day and before you know it...we are a kinder group of people. Let you be you and allow all others the same freedom. Peace.
