Truly we all are the same, though we are different and unique in our own ways, when all is said and done, we are all humans. In the words of Tazim Elkington “I am a human being and that is where it begins and ends, the rest are details”. With that in mind who can give any reason why we as Kenyans cannot find a way to live together in peace? Today in the morning, the devotion was conducted by a Muslim and being a Christian I was not offended by what he said. We all have some kinds of prejudicial attitude towards others and the only way we can destroy these walls is through increased interactions with the people of diverse backgrounds. It’s amazing. After only 5 days, the people are laughing, hugging and joking as if they had known each other for years. People were surprised at how they could relate to each others experiences even though they came from different countries and ethnic backgrounds. This is a wake up call to all the youth to come together and break down every barrier whether in terms of the religion, race, gender or culture. Remember together we stand and divided we fall.
