Gosh, what a theme for today, such a simple concept yet one which seems so tough in today’s society. I don’t know if its the influence of social media, politics and some world leaders’ actions and values but tolerance of others seems to have worsened over recent years. Religious hatred, racism, sexism seem so much more prevalent. Social media has many positive traits but the anonymity means people say things that are cruel, ugly and evil, hiding behind a mask. They then find an ally and believe that their views are just and proper and hatred develops. It’s up to us to call out such prejudice and hatred and to promote tolerance, to show that such views are not acceptable. This poem is one of my favourites and whilst from World War 2, is still relevant today.
