It’s Time

It’s 2015 and it’s time
       for change
It’s time we start
looking at skin color
the same way we
look at eye color
         and
hair color.

It’s 2015 and it’s time
       to change.
It’s time we start
treating all people
with respect and dignity
no matter what culture
             or
background they’re from.

It’s 2015 and it’s time
       to value
all human life –
the unborn, “special needs,” elderly;
they are all precious –
blessing the lives of
       everyone
lucky enough to know them.

It’s 2015 and it’s time
       for change.
It’s time to shed
selfishness, prejudice, and blindness
opening our eyes
to the unique beauty
             in
each individual.

It’s 2015 and it’s time
       to embrace
all of humankind
remembering we are
brothers and sisters
from the same parents
       formed in
the Creator’s image.

It’s 2015 and it’s time
       to thaw
        our
       hearts.
