"WE ARE BETTER TOGETHER" 
  ... by Naiel Ahmed Chaudry 
  
We can be boys and we can be girls
But altogether we'll shine like pearls 
 
We can be black and we can be white 
But altogether we'll have the might 

We can be short and we can be tall
But altogether we'll never fall 
 
We can be strong and we can be weak
But altogether we'll be unique 
 
We can be poor and we can be rich 
But altogether we'll make the switch 
 
We can be fast and we can be slow 
But altogether we'll make it flow 
 
We can be right and we can be wrong 
But altogether we will be strong!



Deep appreciation to Naiel for sharing his gift of poetry -- and his young wisdom -- with us. 
We all need to remember this!
