We Are More Alike My Friends, Than We Are Unalike

in major we're the same. I note the obvious differences between each sort and type, but we are more alike, my friends, than we are unalike. We are more alike.

Human Family - Poem by Maya Angelou

It almost feels as if there is no time in history when change has happened at such a rapid pace. Does that ever happen to you when you start to see the connections everywhere? You see I love a good intellectual conversation. Recently chatting with two dear friends, I was asking them their views on gender, raising children, masculinity, femininity, sexuality. You know. The whole gamut.

My favorite Apple commercial of all time premiered during the Opening Ceremonies of the Rio Olympics. It portrays a montage of still images of humans, of various ages, skin colors, and cultures. The late writer and poet Maya Angelou offers a voice-over of select lines from her poem, Human Family full version available here. At the end, she shares her final thoughts, so simply worded yet needed desperately in a world of 7 billion people, often hotly divided:. This poem and set of images calls to me, as I'm always seeking to find commonalities between people. It is what compelled me to work hard on a "matchmaking" registry of individuals with rare genetic variants while coordinating GenomeConnect at Geisinger Health Systems. It's what motivated my work to connect families in distress with support resources while working in a Maternal Fetal Medicine clinic in Indianapolis.

Prev Poem. Next Poem. I love this poem but had not heard it until it was played as part of an advertisement. I have no idea what the ad concerned, however, I had to have a copy of this poem. Wish Mr. Trump could Read complete story.

I note the obvious differences in the human family. Some of us are serious, some thrive on comedy. Some declare their lives are lived as true profundity, and others claim they really live the real reality. The variety of our skin tones can confuse, bemuse, delight, brown and pink and beige and purple, tan and blue and white. I've sailed upon the seven seas and stopped in every land, I've seen the wonders of the world not yet one common man. I know ten thousand women called Jane and Mary Jane, but I've not seen any two who really were the same.
