Do you ever find it interesting that we are 99% the same as chimpanzees? 99% of our DNA is exactly the same as theirs. And yet when we stand next to them, all we can see are differences. Between humans there is even less of a differece. We are approximately 99.9% similar in everything. But look at the range of diferences that we go through. If we were being classified the way that we classify animals, based on visible characteristics, we could never call a person from Malaysia part of the same species as someone from Spain, or South Africa. But we are. 0.01% is not enough difference to constitute a different species. So why do we insist on fighting amongst ourselves like we are? Just because a persons race, religion, or creed is different than ours, we feel the need to segregate? We are more similar than we are different, and we need to remember that. In fact, I hope to be able to get scholarships for women over 40 so I can finally major in art like I have wanted to for many years
