Bringing people together
Guess who is coming to dinner!

Ok, so, there is a board meeting and it is running late. Everyone is getting hungry so its time to order a delivery. There are 10 board members. Is there a difference in race, religion or gender? All people need to eat except someone who is on a diet. All of the board members make enough money not to worry about the cost of dinner unless they have to pay their kids college tuition.

Chinese, Mexican, Italian,  Greek,  yadda, yadda, yadda, etc. Etc, etC, who cares! We all have to eat. But, can we all agree on one delivery? Or… do we order from 10 different deliveries? Now, we are split. Five on one side of the table and five on the other. Five wanted Italian food and the other 5 wanted French. They each stayed on their side of the table and agreed with their cohorts. And disagreed with their adversaries. These people are more like members of a club. They vow for their club and vowed to hate the others. That is the way their club thinks and the way they have always thought. Both sides!

Religion: both sides are religious and of course one side is more faithful than the other. But, religion is supposed to be separated from the rest. You have to remember there are more than one religion! “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion.” You can quote me on that. Actually you have to think of the minority religions. People who are not represented by the board members need your thoughts.

Everyone belongs to one minority or another. Even people going bald want to be represented. Why do we need so many barber shops when half of us are bald? These board members are not parents over the people. They are more like siblings. Though you think you know everything you have to think there is so much out there that you don’t know about and thus you have to be open to… causes célèbres!

The female gender is split between the two groups. One religion says they should stay at home and make babies and the other says why not be Vice-president of the United States of America! Again, why is religion interfering in the rights of all people?

These 10 board members are really politicians who are divided on the vote to allow 1,000 people to enter America from a devastated storm ridden island in the Caribbean Sea.

These surviving islanders did not cause the storm. If anything it is the Billionaires fault who don’t care about the environment. All these survivors need is food, medical assistance and shelter. They won’t fight over where the food comes from. They will enjoy whatever they can get. It will be the politicians who decide who, what, when, where and/or how. If they can’t decide on their own dinner, how will they decide the fate of others?
