Similar – IF

This week for Illustration Friday, I did not have time to come up with a new illustration, so I had to borrow an image I’ve already created. What can I say? Life is hectic!

There are so many ways that people are similar, but unfortunately we have created a history of focusing on negative differences. Maybe…hopefully, in the USA, we are now focusing on the similarities and celebrating all our differences.

Oh I am so wishing for this New Year in the United States of America!   Peace.

  29. This is really great and I love what you wrote. I feel the same way. As a Canadian, I am watching closely and hoping that perhaps our country will have a ‘similar’ change in government.
