How Different Are We? A Group Participation Exercise Regarding Our Social Differences and Similarities
RIGHT TO THE HEART OF THE MATTER
The purpose of this article is clearly stated in the title. How different are we? It has always been my contention that our commonalities far outnumber our differences, and that if we could just concentrate on those commonalities we might somehow stumble closer to peace on earth.
To prove my theory, I am enlisting the brilliant writing community of HubPages. I am going to ask a general question and then collect the responses. I will then write a follow-up article using the responses as proof that we really are all the same in many ways.
The question is not a deep-searching question. In fact, it is simplistic in nature, having to do with an aspect of life that we all understand.
Are you ready? Write your responses in the comment section and if you could also tell me where you are from that would be helpful. I will collect the answers and then write an article based on the responses.
The Question: What is the most important thing in life for you? In other words, what one thing would you rather not live without?
As an added bonus for participating in this experiment, you do not have to read a long, 1,500 word article because you see, friends, this article is finished. The rest will be written by you.
Thank you for your help.
