Don’t Be A Star

20140526-200427.jpg

Remember that toy, when we were kids? The box with different shapes cut into each side, and you have to put the triangle in the triangle, the circle in the circle? That toy is humanity, my friend. At some point you have to accept that the triangle is not going fit it into the circle. That doesn’t mean the triangle is wrong, or the circle is right. It simply means that each of us have our own place that fits us individually. If a star came in and made all the shapes on that box a star, because they’re a star and believe that’s the only right shape to be, that star is denying the existence of the circle.

Recognizing the circle has just as much right to be a circle as does the star, is about respect and equality and acceptance. Refusing to acknowledge that right, is choosing to live in ignorance.
