Fun Photo Friday: Giving Thanks for Tolerance

Not everyone will agree that today’s Fun Photo Friday image is “fun” but I think it’s fun plus a lot more — timely, symbolic, and much needed. If you love the photo and everything this rainbow house stands for, read on. If you don’t, please read someone else’s blog.

Yesterday was Thanksgiving here in the U.S. and I decided to take a broader view of what I’m grateful for. Family, friends and health are all still top of the list, but in today’s world, somehow it feels right to give thanks for all the tolerant people on the planet, who make this world better.

It’s cliche but true that all human beings on this earth bleed the same, breathe the same, even reproduce in the same way! How much more connected could we be?

So here’s a toast to all the people who accept and respect all other people, no matter their race, religion, gender identity or sexual persuasion. And here’s an extra toast to those who toil day and night to make the world a more tolerant place for all of us.

Happy Day-After Thanksgiving, everyone.
