We are all Venn Diagrams.

Do you remember Venn Diagrams?

All these interconnected, overlapping circles,

Two wedding rings make a Venn diagram.

A Venn diagram can have any number of circles,

Sometimes two, sometimes many

As can a human being.

Today we have shouting voices

Competing Tribes

And there is always an “Other”

To objectify, then fear, then hate.

They may be nations, races, political parties,

Sexual orientations, sport teams,

Or even favorite kinds of cheese

But these could all be plotted as Venn Diagrams!

And they would all intersect in one place—

Our common humanity.

Connect the circles and focus on that part of the diagram

And the world
