DIVISION: HOW PROGRESS IS KEPT FROM BEING MADE
Unity is a word seldom used in today’s time and it seem like the only reference the word provide is Queen Latifah’s hit song from the 80s.
Unity today is an after thought because another word plagues our society,
That word is DIVISION.
During my visit to the civil rights museum , I seen an exhibit that explained how officers would attempt to isolate black folks and focused on individualized attacks. It is common sense that a person is put at a disadvantage when alone rather than with people.
Now after reading that, think about the seed of division that has been deeply planted into our community.
We’re divided by our clothes, the cars we drive, our employment, our education, stuff which are frivolous in the grand scheme of things.
The common goal is prosperity as a people, so how can this be achieved? Simply by coming together. That is extremely easier said than done it almost sound naive but it could be done.
Adding together the strengths of communities, subtracting the weaknesses, and multiplying the numbers of people involved in the fight for change are all factors that destroy division.
To be divided is to be separated which in reality is being held from progress.
A basketball team divided could never win a championship.
A car divided could never drive properly on the road.
And a house divided could never stand.
People come together by honing In on a common goal and knowing the role everyone plays.
Everyone isn’t a Martin Luther King and everyone can’t be Michael Jordan but everyone can have an impact.
