Thats why we write Thats why we sing Thats why we dance Thats why we paint Thats why we pray Because we are just a group of atoms Because we want something more We need to create something more There has to be something more Watch someone pray sometime I mean really pray See someone with glassy eyes and parted lips clasp their hands and silently ask of their beliefs why If you are truly my progeny it will drive any prejudice the world may have given you from your heart What you will see in that prayer filled face is humanity in its most vulnerable state We pray because we need something to turn to something to believe in We need an all mighty truth that has the power to soothe our fears Why Because we are afraid of being on our own we are afraid of not being saved from all the pain and suffering in this world We are afraid that all we do we do in vain We want arms into which we may retreat after death We want an explanation for our lives And so we pray to our God and others pray to theirs and some call it enlightenment or nirvana or it But we do it for the same reason to nurse the same weakness When you see religious prejudice or any type of prejudice for that matter know that that bigotry has no real foundation No one knows more than anyone else There is no proof There is no answer key Everyone has different beliefs but we all have the same frailties See that when you see someone pray and have compassion Have compassion for the world the world that has condemned itself to anger and hatred And try to rise above tolerance Tolerance may be a virtue but it is a condescending one It says I do not accept you
