“It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.” — Theodore Roosevelt


All people share three things in common

1. We are not animals, we are speaking thinking people, very similar in our physical structure to one another.

2. We are all God’s diplomats, in other words, animals are run by instincts, but God desires to create diplomats, people that have minds that can freely choose to do God’s work of sharing, caring, goodness and kindness so whether you like it or not you were created by God (as our sages note God’s incredible genius in being able to fashion from a sperm and egg within a human a new human and unite a soul in this child to live seventy eighty years, which is the story of all humans;) hence particularly when we excessive our freedom to be God’s diplomats we see our absolute commonality with every other fellow human.

3. The truth is that on a soul level we are truly one for all agree the soul comes from God and God is one, so it is like the same sun shining through different windows.
