Love, It Is The Answer

If you don’t like the press
Think they are evil even
Then, go meet some local journalists
Take a tour of a newspaper
Or, a news station
Get to know them as real people
And, maybe, just maybe
You’ll see that they are just that
They are people
​We must not lose our humanity
Or we will be forever doomed
For without humanity
Who and what
are we?

If you don’t like all police officers
Think they are all bad
Then, go meet some local officers
Visit and tour a jail
Volunteer for the sheriff’s department
Spend some time
With them talk to them without an agenda
Get to know them as real people
And, maybe, just maybe
You’ll see that they are just that
They are people
We must not lose our humanity
Or we will be forever doomed
For without humanity
Who and what
are we?

If you don’t like every politician
Call up your local officials
Find out who they are
Beyond their policies
Who they are as a person
Volunteer
Or better yet run for office
Be a part of the change
Instead of complaining
Get to know them as real people
And, maybe, just maybe
You’ll see that they are just that
They are people
We must not lose our humanity
Or we will be forever doomed
For without humanity
Who and what
are we?

If you don’t like Conservatives or Liberals
Guess what?
There are already know who are already
Real people
You like them because they are real people
Not as their politics
They offer something more than that
There are others too
On both sides who are good people
Get to know them as real people
And, maybe, just maybe
You’ll see that they are just that
They are people
We must not lose our humanity
Or we will be forever doomed
For without humanity
Who and what
are we?

If you don’t like people from other countries
Other cultures who come here
Offer them a gift of a smile
A present in the form of kindness
Get to know them as real people
And, maybe, just maybe
You’ll see that they are just that
They are people
We must not lose our humanity
Or we will be forever doomed
For without humanity
Who and what
are we?

If you don’t like gays
Transsexuals
Bisexuals
Someone you know is one
Hold them close
Instead of pushing them away
Have a cup of coffee
Sit down and see one another
Beyond however they love
Or how you love
Get to know them as real people
And, maybe, just maybe
You’ll see that they are just that
They are people
We must not lose our humanity
Or we will be forever doomed
For without humanity
Who and what
are we?

If you don’t like Muslims
Visit a mosque
I’ll even take you
The only thing to fear
Is the unknown
So embrace it
Without judgment
Or, and agenda
They are no different
Than you and I
If only you look beyond
Their faith
See that they have value
As we all do
Get to know them as real people
And, maybe, just maybe
You’ll see that they are just that
They are people
We must not lose our humanity
Or we will be forever doomed
For without humanity
Who and what
are we?
