Editor’s Perspective: One Planet, One Human Race

 For nearly twenty years, workplaces across our Nation have been educating leaders, managers, and employees on the importance of diversity as an organizational resource.

Yet, Congress is willing to throw the baby out with the bath water and stall our political system rather than work with an African American president.

 It’s a sad commentary on our leadership or lack thereof, since we are a diverse nation operating within a global economy that’s in crisis. I know there are people who long for the “good old days and how it used to be,” but I’m sure that instead of lamenting the past, African Americans, Asians, Hispanics, women, gays and lesbians, transgendered individuals, people with disabilities, and many others are grateful for the progress.

Dr. King’s, “I Have a Dream,” speech speaks of the future so eloquently, “We cannot walk alone. And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead. We cannot turn back.”

Instead of political stalemates and self-centered pledges driving the agenda, we need holistic leadership to pull together in the spirit of cooperation and compromise for the good of the country. It can be done, in much the same way that divorced parents put aside their differences to raise healthy, happy children.

It is my hope our society will embrace the 21st century with a passion for balancing the economy, sharing the wealth, and preserving the planet.

Have a Blessed New Year!!!
