Stop Hatred


Let's Fight Racism and Hatred

This page is to pray that we can all get along and love each other one day, just a few stories to make you stop and think. The picture below shows how the young children know no hatred, they are taught it. It is a shame that we cannot be united as adults. We are all of the human race.

THE COLD WITHIN


Six humans trapped by happenstance
In black and bitter cold.
Each one possessed a stick of wood,
Or so the story's told.
Their dying fire in need of logs,
The first woman held hers back
For on the faces around the fire,
She noticed one was black.
The next man looking cross the way
Saw one not of his church,
And couldn't bring himself to give
The fire his stick of birch.
The third one sat in tattered clothes;
He gave his coat a hitch.
Why should his log be put to use
To warm the idle rich?
The rich man just sat back and thought
Of the riches he had in store,
And how to keep what he had earned
From the lazy poor.
The black man's face bespoke revenge
As the fire passed from his sight,
For all he saw in his stick of wood
Was a chance to spite the white.
And the last man of this forlorn group
Did naught except for gain.
Giving only to those who gave
Was how he played the game.
The logs held tight in death's still hands
Was proof of human sin.
They didn't die from the cold without,
They died from the cold within.








"Beauty Tips by Audrey Hepburn"
For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run his fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge you'll never walk alone.
People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed and redeemed. Never throw out anybody.
Remember: if you ever need a helping hand, you'll find one at the end of your arm. As you grow older you will discover that you have two hands: One for helping yourself, the other for helping others.
Now all we have to do is go out and do this in simple, loving, caring, concerned, and unpretentious ways.




A story is told about a soldier
who was finally coming home
after having fought in Vietnam.
He called his parents from San Francisco.
"Mom and Dad, I'm home,
but I've got a favor to ask.
I have a friend I'd like to bring with me."
"Sure," they replied,
"we'd love to meet him."
"There's something you should know
the son continued, "he was hurt
pretty badly in the fighting.
He stepped on a land mine and lost an arm and a leg.
He has nowhere else to go,
and I want him to come live with us."

"I'm sorry to hear that, son.
Maybe we can help him find somewhere to live."
"No, Mom and Dad,
I want him to live with us." "Son," said the father, "you don't know what you're asking. Someone with such a handicap would be a terrible burden on us. We have our own lives to live, and we can't let something like this interfere with our lives. I think you should just come home and forget about this guy. He'll find a way to live on his own."

At that point, the son hung up the phone. The parents heard nothing more from him. A few days later, however, they received a call from the San Francisco police. Their son had died after falling from a building, they were told. The police believed it was suicide.

The grief-stricken parents flew to San Francisco and were taken to the city morgue to identify the body of their son. They recognized him, but to their horror they also discovered something they didn't know, their son had only one arm and one leg.

The parents in this story are like many of us. We find it easy to love those who are good-looking or fun to have around, but we don't like people who inconvenience us or make us feel uncomfortable. We would rather stay away from people who aren't as healthy, beautiful, or smart as we are.

Thankfully, there's someone who won't treat us that way. Someone who loves us with an unconditional love that welcomes us into their hearts, regardless of how messed up we are.

There's a miracle called Friendship that dwells in the heart. You don't know how it happens or when it gets started. But you know the special lift it always brings and you realize that Friendship Is Life's most precious gift! Friends are a very rare jewel, indeed.

They make you smile and encourage you to succeed. They lend an ear, they share a word of praise, and they always want to open their hearts to us. They accept us and love us as we are!
