HUMAN RIGHTS : EQUALITY
WE ARE THE SAME BUT DIFFERENT
We are the same because we are all human beings. We are mammals, primates, and intelligent vertebrates, who are born, grow, change, and die. We are also the same because we are all different. We have thoughts, ideas, beliefs, talents, and dreams, but how we think and act makes us who we are. Children often feel that they need to be the same as everyone else. That is the main reason for unhappiness. Do we see our differences as reasons for judgement and fighting? How can we view the different ways of others as things to enjoy, rather than criticise?

" The happy meadow " (ΤΟ ΧΑΡΟΥΜΕΝΟ ΛΙΒΑΔΙ )
Once upon a time –not far from the place we live- there was a meadow. All the people around said that it was the most beautiful meadow they had ever seen. It was full of white daisies. The daisies loved each other very much and had a great time living all together. But one day a poppy grew among them. All the daisies gathered around the newborn flower. Some of them looked at it with curiosity, some others admired it and some others despised it. So they turned their backs to it.
“This flower is red and we are white”, said a haughty daisy. ”Look at this poppy; she is quite different from us. Have a look at her leaves…they are so wild… and the stem is full of thorns. This flower spoils the beauty of our meadow. I, a pure white daisy, can’t stand living with her. In any case, I don’t want a flower like that next to me! ”
“What are you talking about?” said Grandma Daisy. Grandma was old but very wise and all the other daisies wanted her advice. “Your Grandfather, who had many friends in the area, told me that there are a lot of meadows with daisies and poppies living together. He also said that poppies are nice flowers just like us. We should let her stay with us. Obviously she will not make us any harm…”
“What?” asked a young daisy angrily. ”And if next to her a new poppy grew up and then another one and then another one and finally our meadow got filled with little poppies spread here and there…? I don’t want my baby daisies to play with the little poppies.”
“She is different. How can we harmonize with each other?” was another comment.
“Think of us ! We may differ from one another but we live together and have nice relationships” said daisy Rita (Margarita). From the very beginning Rita liked the poppy and looked at her with sympathy.
“What do you mean we differ? Can’t you see? We are identical. We all are white!” shouted some daisies. Then they began to count their leaves, their stems, their roots… and later they understood that actually they were quite different.
In the course of time they thought of it carefully and decided to become friends with the poppy. The poppy became a member of the group although she was red. The daisies, on the other hand, understood that she didn’t take from them anything –neither their food nor the light of the sun. Everything in nature was enough and it could be used by everyone.
They became happier when they heard people saying that they preferred the meadow with the red and white flowers all together.
It was a lovely landscape !
It was a happy meadow !!
