Unity In Diversity

colourful wall

Many people think that we need unity in the face of terrorism.

However ‘Unity’ is a funny thing. It requires understanding, openness, and a shared goal even though the paths taken are not similar.

It requires similar values that not necessarily put into action in similar ways.

– It requires a full knowledge of the fact that dissimilarities also exist. –

But most importantly, unity requires a shared vision.

…and ‘Vision’ is not just having an idea what the future might look like – it is describing the future as if it is now.

Until we have a clear vision of what unity means to us in the face of terrorism, we cannot agree on it, nor can we act on it.
