Life is too short and precious to be against someone just because they believe and/or look different. We are all human beings, no matter what color of skin, or background.

Let us all be children of one G-d and lets not be afraid of the differences in other's. As Debbie Friedman sang Not by Might and not by power but by Spirit alone can we live in Peace.
