Differences and Differences

I work in a cubicle, with a window(!), but still a cubicle. I get to over hear all kinds of conversations. One recently focused on religious attitudes towards a minority group.

I hold in my heart the hope that the many healthy differences, melding into a web of dependent cooperation, can outweigh the mean spirited differences lurking so close to the surface in our society. We are challenged to live and work together, and I believe our unstated differences, our individual places of strength, are buttress against all manner of divisive attitudes.
