All people should promote the Golden Rule

Typing Letter to the Editor for the Opinion page.

In today’s tumultuous world, love of humanity is what is needed most. At the root, we are all the same.

The greatest tribute to the latter truism is the promotion of the Golden Rule – “Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.”

Or as my husband (Ray Kalainikas) would simplify, “Treat every human being as you would want to be treated.”

Instead of the government (federal, state, local) mandating lessons in schools which are nothing more than the promotion of identify politics, separating groups of people by race, gender, etc., a simple lesson – about the Golden Rule  (at home, in schools and throughout our communities in our nation and globally) would be the greatest teacher of how every human being is equal in worth; and how each person/individual deserves to be treated with love, respect and compassion.

Surely, that would promote unification, halt violence and wars, and promote peace.
