what makes us human is what we share.
our roots, our conceptions, our ends.
and our behavior.

we all make distinctions
and we want them to be recognized
and to be appreciated
because we are distinctions ourselves.

our distinctions are what allows us
to be distinguished,
to satisfy our desire to stand out,
to be special, to be loved,
and to be a valuable part of humanity.

distinctions drive progress.
