(E-mail Correspondence between my Mother Dearest and I)
ME: Inspirational quote for the day! Thought you might like J:
“When you call yourself an Indian or a Muslim, or a Christian or a European, or anything else, you are being violent…you are separating yourself from the rest of mankind. When you separate yourself by belief, by nationality, by tradition, it breeds violence. So a man who is seeking to understand violence does not belong to any country, to any religions, to any political party, or partial system; he is concerned with the total understanding of mankind.”J.Krishnamurti
MOM: What are you trying to say? I don’t think I want to hold hands and sing campfire Kum Ba Yah songs any time soon.
ME: Why not? We are all human; we should be peaceful toward each other.
MOM: WHAT? ARE YOU ON DRUGS?!
Me: -_- For the love of God, please tell me I’m adopted.
