Our Common Humanity

Whilst enjoying the beautiful and charming International Rose Garden at Portland, Oregon, I came across this inscription at the Holocaust Memorial. Such powerful words therein:

"Our precious life rests not on our ability to see what makes us different, one from another, but rather on our ability to recognize what makes us the same. What ultimately defines us is the moral strength to believe in our common humanity and to act upon this belief."
