When you hear singing... DANCE!

SHERO on Humanity: 

One of my favourite books (Made into a movie starring one of my favourite actors Gregory Peck) is 'To Kill a Mockingbird'. What makes this book and movie profound was the fact that it addressed the challenges facing the times during which it was written. Ms. Nelle Harper Lee wrote it in 1960. And here we are today... Black vs white has changed to Christian vs Muslim, Gay vs Straight and the divisions regretfully continue... In the movie Atticus Finch said 'It is a sin to kill a Mockingbird because all that it wants to do is sing its heart out for us'... As Humans Being aren't we all Mockingbirds? Is it not our endeavour to sing our hearts out, enjoy life, share our dreams, goals, differences, ideas, creations together with each other? When did it become ok to differentiate between and put a price tag on each other...Don't kill a Mockingbird... dance when it sings!
