These children had grown close to each other because they had spent the last couple of years together. Often they resembled siblings, fighting, playing, singing, and dancing together. One afternoon, my class and I had just finished the two o’clock snack. As we began cleaning up, one of the little girls, Mandy, took the initiative to get the hand broom while another girl, Trish, grabbed the dustpan.

How do we use them to help us complete ourselves and our work and understand the place for love, tolerance and kindness? Justice and mercy must both be a part of how we treat those who mistreat us because when you understand, you can forgive, and when you can forgive, you do not hate, and when you do not hate, you are capable of loving, and love is the most powerful weapon known to man. It is not an accident that we say, kill with kindness, love thine enemies, and torment with tenderness. When we raise a generation of children with compassion, when parents make sure that their children know that they are loved, when teachers truly educate and not just inform, and when the clergy of every faith remind us that we are all children of God, we will have a planet inhabited by the human family, where our differences are used for recognition and not persecution, where we recognize that we are all the same color inside.
