“He drew a circle that shut me out –
Heretic, rebel, a thing to flout.
But love and I had the wit to win:
We drew a circle and took him In!

Mother Teresa stated, “If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.”

In On Such a Full Sea, Chang-rae Lee wrote, “It is ‘where we are’ that should make all the difference, whether we believe we belong there or not.”

The author of the the Allegiant series, Veronica Roth wrote, “I belong to the people I love, and they belong to me–they, and the love and loyalty I give them, form my identity far more than any word or group ever could.”

How do we decide who belongs?

In stores and books, and it seems in life as well we tend to sort and categorize put items in a box, and maybe people…is that ok? How can it change?  Consider this video post by Prince Ea
