We are all people

Every movement has had its detractors, those that sat aside and neither spoke out for or against those not powerful enough to stand for themselves and those that took a stand for equanimity in our laws and acceptance in our society. From the end of slavery to women's suffrage to segregation to civil rights to marriage equality, it is the same. Treating other human beings as if they are the same as you. It does not matter their color, culture, heritage, creed, dogma, sexual orientation, body size, mental capacity, or reproductive organs... We are all the same. We are all complex, impossible to define and unique. Do not be one of those who sits aside and watches as the rest turn away from those that most need our assistance, compassion and simple acceptance as people.
