Love Thy Neighbor

This isn't a political statement- this is a societal statement. No matter who won the election, discrimination exists.

Love Thy Neighbor

My neighbor is Latino.

My neighbor is Black.

My neighbor is Muslim.

My neighbor is a woman.

My neighbor is gay.

My neighbor just wants to be accepted into society.

The world is made up of differences– racial, religious, sexual, economical...the list goes on.

Despite these difference, the world is more similar than not– we are all human.

Love Thy Neighbor

Love and cherish what makes us different

Love and cherish the people you pass by on the street.

Love and cherish everyone that walks through your life.

A different childhood.

A different understanding of the world.

A different expectation for the future.

A different sense of worth.

Love Thy Neighbor

Love and respect what makes us different

Love and respect that people have their own beliefs

Love and respect that everyone isn't going to agree with you

A different religious understanding

A different upbringing

A different emotional response

A different opinion

Love Thy Neighbor

Love and accept what makes us different.

Love and accept everyone's opinions.

Love and accept that everyone on this planet walks around with a different background.

A different identity.

A different set of beliefs.

A different ambition.

A different perspective.

Love Thy Neighbor

Because you are someone's neighbor, too.

Love Thy Neighbor

Because everyone isn't necessarily as fortunate as you.

Love Thy Neighbor

Because you are different, too.

Love Thy Neighbor

Because the world doesn't revolve around you.

Marconi Beach

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
