Colors of the Skin

Colors of the Skin
“You think I’m an ignorant savage
And you’ve been so many places
I guess it must be so
But still I cannot see
If the savage one is me
How can there be so much that you don’t know?
You don’t know.
… … …
You think the only people who are people
Are the people who look and think like you
But, if you walk the footsteps of a stranger
You’ll learn things you never knew, you never knew.”
~ Stephen Schwartz, Lyricist & Alan Menken, Composer,
Colors of the Wind song from Walt Disney Pictures’ Pocahontas (1995)

A Clear Voice

“We say to you, today, in a loud and clear voice:
Enough of blood and tears. Enough.
We have no desire for revenge. We harbor no hatred towards you.
We, like you, are people who want to build a home, to plant a tree,
to love, live side by side with you in dignity, in empathy,
as human beings, as free men.
We are, today, giving peace a chance and,
again, saying to you in a clear voice: Enough.”
~ Yitzhak Rabin,
5th & 10th Prime Minister of Israel
(1992-1995) & (1974-1977)
