Quotes on Equality and Peace

image

When I look at my multicultural children, all I see is… children. They have no idea of the battles that are fought around the world among people of different races, nationalities and religions. They do not identify themselves (yet) with any heritage (being born in China to parents from different cultural and ethnic background).

As we are celebrating Black History Month around the world, I can’t but think that we are what we make ourselves and our children. We make the labels, we judge people by their skin color, religion and nationality. We can’t ignore all the differences and diversities we have. After all, we have been created different, unique. But what we can do, is accept and embrace equality and unity that are within us; the fact that the very uniqueness we have is what binds us, makes us special. Instead of singling out our differences, we should appreciate them.

Today I would like to share some quotes on equality and peace that belong to prominent people of African/African-American heritage. These are some beautiful words and I hope that you can share these quotes with your children while exploring with them African and African-American cultures. These are beautiful quotes so share them with your friends and family!
