That’s a cutesy way of saying somethiing that I believe, and believe in, more and more as I see the way we behave towards each other: we have much more in common than apart, and it would surprise most of us to know how much. I got the shock of a lifetime when I spent a little time reading the results of a DNA test. I wasn’t surprised to learn my ancestry was 99 per cent (plus) Jewish/Middle Eastern, but the rest was most interesting. It seems I have a fourth or fifth cousin whose ancestors include George Fox, the first Quaker, and John Alden (who probably didn’t get the admonition to “speak for yourself”); and a second or third cousin who’s got a Rothschild or two up the family tree. There are also some French, French-Canadians, Irish, English, Germans, a variety of Slavs (not unexpected), and some Norwegians and Swedes. So…the next time you want to say or do something ethnically demeaning about or to someone, watch out–you might be aiming at yourself, too!
