¨There’s so much virtue in difference but even more in accepting it,¨ yelled my friend as we walked hand in hand, marching in this year’s parade. Even though I wasn’t like her, I was willing to walk alongside her as she and many others embraced who they truly were. She taught me what being brave was and despite us not being the same, I carry that lesson with me wherever I go. That’s what being open to difference does. It pushes you to your limits and forces you to see things from different perspectives. Let’s embrace that.

    Your drawing is perfect. By the way, just in case you ever need it, many of us get our pictures from Unsplash.com. There are thousands of royalty-free, public-domain photos there and some are incredible works of art.

    Hi Andrea and welcome. Lovely first story. I love the way you’ve advocated embracing each others differences. It’s something we should all do. Life would be so boring if we were all the same.

    A warm welcome here at the Voice club. Your story is very good advocacy to everyone. For me, acceptance of every human difference is a symbol of peace and love throughout the world. And it means simultaneous development.

    Hi Andrea, and welcome. Tell me what you think? I know there are a lot of different opinions of how we see and understand each other, and what the word different means to us? But I’m thinking………wouldn’t it be nice if we didn’t see – difference! The advertising industry make their money telling us we are all so different, and that we need to change our appearance, or the style we live… Read more »

    Thanks for your story and welcome to Voice.club, Andrea. You are the first one, beside me as a Swedish gringo, from Colombia, participating in Voice.club. Your story is beautiful and important to be told, over and over, until Love in all its aspects and colors is accepted as what it is (Your picture, love = love is perfect!) and not seen as a threat. I am impressed by your English and wonder… Read more »

    Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

    Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
