Yesterday was the UN International Day for Tolerance, I wanted to raise awareness of this and share some thoughts…

“On this International Day of Tolerance, I call on all people and governments to actively combat fear, hatred and extremism with dialogue, understanding and mutual respect. Let us advance against the forces of division and unite for our shared future.”

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

“What is tolerance? It is the consequence of humanity. We are all formed of frailty and error; let us pardon reciprocally each other’s folly – that is the first law of nature.”– Voltaire (François-Marie Arouet), French Writer

I think I’m tolerant of race and religion, different cultures, but I’ve still got a long way to go: there are people I find it hard to tolerate, so I keep striving to be more tolerant and more compassionate to try and make the world a little better…
