A Prayer

I stand not above my fellows, but among.
I stand not below.
We are one, one and all.
We are Men and Women.
Straight and Gay. We are many.
We are Iraqi and Israeli.
We are American and African.
We are Muslim and Christian and Atheist.
We are many. We are one.
Human
Let us not kill one another.
Let us not hate.
Let us not think “I am right
and you are wrong.”
Let us differ from one another.
Let us celebrate our differences.
Let us celebrate our sameness.
The color of your skin is beautiful,
as is mine.
My language is different than yours.
Both communicate equally.
We are faulted and we are perfect.
We are.
Human
Let us be together, not apart.
