A group of people who share some values and respect the laws that enable them live together.
Is that all? I believe that there is more to a society. Fundamental to peaceful and harmonious coexistence includes respecting others and treating others in ways that you would want to be treated. The golden good neigbhours rule, it is called.
How many of us can sincerely say that we truly respect others and would treat them fairly as we would wish to be treated? I guess if we are to be sincere, that does not happen most of the time. Let us rise above ethnic or religious differences, race and all other divisions that tear us apart and see one another as humans primarily.
If I saw a human being in front of me, immediately I connect with them because on an emotional level, I put myself in their place and wonder in my mind how I would feel if I was in their state.
Let us rise above selfish acts and self centredness. let us choose to see beyond the physical in order to pull together to build a society that is tolerant loving and safe for our children and future generation.
We can do it, if we choose to.
