All human beings have one thing in common which is their desire for happiness. You want happiness, and I want happiness. You do not want suffering and I do not want suffering. This is what makes us one. We cannot get happiness at the expense of someone else’s happiness. You need to be confident and courageous enough to build your society and your home without harming others. Without confidence you cannot build your country and without having compassion and education you cannot serve the nation. Humans should make efforts with wisdom and education which should be mixed with love, passion, and compassion. We should try our best and work hard. The honesty to serve your country with love and kindness will make the nation the greatest one.
Human beings like to call everything its own property. We like to call… my book, my way, my opinion, my sect. These factors lead us to fight each other because of the feeling of belonging and superiority over others due to the “ my things”. If we say that the thing is ours, and we all can use it together in its most effective and productive way with more efficiency, the point of “my” will no longer exist as a distractive factor which creates enmity, separation, discrimination… among human being and create a false perception of arrogance and superiority.
As younger generation, we are able to educate people to lets study together, bring different groups together, discuss together, make friends from diverse sectors, and remove the misunderstandings. Do not go out with a weapon but bring them together in peace because we humans do not favor war and can be altogether in peace and humanity.
