The Right worth the Fight

In today’s world everybody believes they are right!  They believe their point of view is right, their religion is right, their race is right, their politics is right, their lifestyle is right.  They believe the world is amiss unless it conforms to their ideas of right.  As a result, they live and raise their children in their little worlds of right, which creates a perpetual circle of right, even as the greater world around them begs to differ.  Who is right?  There is only one right worth the fight:

The Right worth the Fight

If you are black you believe you are right,

If you are white you believe you are right,

If you are Christian you believe you are right,

If you are Muslim you believe you are right,

If you are a woman you believe you are right,

If you are a man you believe you are right,

The truth is you are not here to be right;

You are here to learn to live in harmony –

That is the reward – the right worth the fight.

 If people stopped focusing on right, and focused on living in harmony, the world would be a much better place to live.
