Education also caused us to separate. Most of society - human beings and animals - what we know is what we do, the more we learn the better we become. Even animals realize this - if you take a wild animal, you can teach them with patience. If you train them well then you could have your animals inside the houses; still today you go to foreign countries even dogs and cats are not welcomed inside the home.

Currently in St Louis where I lived for over sixty-five years, chaos runs rampart.
Riots are happening due to a "Not Guilty" verdict if former St Louis Police Officer Stockley because he shot and killed 24-year old Anthony Lamar Smith.
I want to try to be a part of a solution.
I wrote this:
When I was a little girl, that was long time ago - I'm 73 years old so I can say that.  I was told in color blind meant you couldn't tell the difference was between greens and blues.
Now in my ripe old age I have come to understand that color blind means you base a lot of things on the color of people's  skin.
New DNA testing shows most of us that there really aren't any pure skin colors. It used to be when you checked your race on a form, "white" was a choice.
Somewhere along the way we were educated to understand white is not even a color, white is the absence of all colors. Which is how Ivory soap became  became 99% pure.  (The absence of almost all impurities so you can our soap)
Then the catch term caught  on that Ivory was the whitest white and ebony was the blackest black.
For whatever reason the color of our skin has become the downfall of creation.
Where as in the beginning our skin color was based on our environment; when we lived in an area that was sunny our skin was darkened by the sun.
That created the tribes or the different segments of society.
Education also caused us to separate. Most of society - human beings and animals - what we know is what we do,  the more we learn the better we become.

We do what we learned, when we learn better we do better.
Call it experience,  call it education; what I feel is the better we understand one another the more tolerance we have for each other.
In the 50s and 60s there was a Dodge dealership in the city of St. Louis called Ray Rixman Dodge.  Their advertising slogan was they were the "good guys in the white hats".
If you bought a car from them you got a keychain with the white hat on it, it was meant to mean you could trust them to offer you a pure deal.  They sold cars to people of all skin colors; the only color important to them was green - the color of your down payment!
If we learn anything in society, we have learned that there's more that we have in common with what we have that divides us.
I grew up thinking I was 100% Greek.  My skin color is not white - it ranges from ecru to brown depending on the season or my lifestyle.
I have never owned slaves, never hired help, I've never even had a maid. In fact In my failing health situation  right now, I have trouble asking for help to stand up!
I wish I could be part of the solution to our world's problems, to accept the reality of our world, to end the senseless killings and violence.  I not only want peace on earth, I want to be a part of bringing it on.
So I think I'll start a chain letter - this is the beginning of it.
You do not have to copy this and send it to five of your friends, along with the kitchen towel; or with a stamp; or a book or a recipe.
All you have to do is live your life in such a way that you are an example to others.
Don't speak evil or spread gossip. Allow only thoughts in your mind that positive don't let your mind dwell on anything negative.
Then do what you can to create peace.
Don't teach your children hatred or about our differences. Teach them patience and acceptance.
Live with and be an example of tolerance and empathy.
Learn to walk in somebody else's shoes and understand what it must feel like, before you judge someone else.
It's easy to sit in your house that has its power, its Wi-Fi and all the conveniences and judge the people in Florida and ask yourself why do they want to rebuild those homes they're in such a disaster.
Climb out of your comfort zone once in a while take off your shoes and socks and walk in the dirt; feel the mud squished between your toes.
Get off their high horse you're sitting on; you have seen lately they knock down those statues pretty quick.
Be the person God created you to be, full of love and offer somebody a helping hand and not a judgment.
I want to thank everyone for their tolerance of me, I am where I am today because people love me.
God have mercy on us and bless this entire planet.
