One Sun

One Sun

Below are two photos.  Both of sunsets.  One is on the continent of Europe; the other taken during a recent trip in November 2013 to the continent of Africa.  Can you guess which is which?

Now, a thought.  The sun rises and sets each and every day.  Each region of the world relies on the same sun.

It brings together humans.

Your Call to Action

We all rely on the same sun. We may separate the rich from the poor through urban planning and due to cultures, history, and beliefs. We can divide the sick and healthy. Yet, we do not have the power to have one sun reserved for group x and one for group y. This may seem simple, yet few act so through their actions.
