Dignity's Reward

We may have different opinions
We might not have the same faith
You might like red wine at dinner
While i might just abstain
We may dress in different colors
Our flags we may wave proud
I might reserve my feelings
While you scream yours right out loud
They say dont judge a book by its cover
Get to know whats deep inside
Treat others how you like to be treated
Teach your children not to lie
Dignity can be a daily gift
If you give it to others free
If we all practiced this principal
Another war we will never see.

    Sadly we humans will always find justification to destroy each other. If only more people subscribed to this kind of thinking. Great write Carl!
