i love everyone because
and i love everyone regardless
and it doesn’t always make sense
but how could anyone deny how inherently beautiful it is
to experience consciousness like only human beings can,
and to experience it with one another
how could anyone not be in love with the idea

This is a call to the living, This is a call to the human, not the perfect, This is a call to those who remember the dreams of their youth, This is a call to the never ending spirit This is the greatest call of all - Algernon Black
To those who refuse to make peace with evil,
With the suffering and the waste of the world.
To those who know their own prejudices,
Who have no intention of becoming prisoners of their own limitations.
Who know what it means to share food and shelter,
The care of children and those who are troubled,
To reach beyond barriers of the past
Bringing people to communion.
Of the common man, his essential decency and integrity,
His unending capacity to suffer and endure,
To face death and destruction and to rise again
And build from the ruins of life.
The call to a faith in people.
This is a call to the living,
This is a call to the human, not the perfect,
This is a call to those who remember the dreams of their youth,
This is a call to the never ending spirit
This is the greatest call of all
- Algernon Black
