           " The strongest bond of human sympathy outside the family relation should be one uniting working people of all nations,tongues and kindreds"Abraham Lincoln,perhaps uncle Abraham foresaw the state in which our world would have fallen when it comes to the aspect of being a unified entity, this I suppose gave rise to his quote .The world was once a united entity and this drive shook the very foundations of heaven and earth at the same time, men who differed every differences of theirs to create a tower of oneness, men who could envision the future and accomplish their aim by being co-ordinated in unism.The tower of babel was built by one person,thats what unity can do,this project of a united group of people caught the attention of God and He had to do what He did obviously to stop this project cause this united force were never unwavering in achieving their purpose.
One big family
             The world would never achieve its aim of unity until we all see each other as one blood,as our origin is of one source,"The world is my country, all mankind my brethren, and to do good is my religion" Thomas Paine. The problems we face today in our world is as a result of seeing our differences not our similarities,its not American,Nigerian,Chinese,Haitian,Mexican etc. its my world, its my brethren, its my country the universe is for us all and until we see it that way we would never come together as one united entity,the defining factor in being in unity is the act of being kindhearted, ask yourself this question if mankind is my brethren then what good would it be unto me to see one suffering in abject poverty and not extend my hand of brotherhood to such, this can help solidify our unifying factor if we practise it properly ."We cannot live only for ourselves.A thousand fibres connects us with our fellow man." Herman Medville, we are one in blood, from one source this is the connectivity that we share, that we were born from one parent (Adam & Eve), therefore mankind should be my purpose,I cannot live on the earth in isolation,I must unite with my brethren to make any meaningful achievements.
               The fact that we are people of different attitudes and people of different behavioural pattern makes mankind unique, therefore for us to be united we must be able to address our weaknesses, differences and diversity, Wayne Muller puts its right in his quote "Within sorrow is grace.When we come close to those things that break us down, we touch those things that also break us open.And in that breaking open, we uncover our true nature."When we appreciate our differences we can close up the gap inbetween and then unite as one entity.
Yes we can
                The daunting task we face most times is that we dont see the good of other people rather we tend to focus attention on their worst side, this ideology also becomes a challenge when we seem to relegate some people to the background believing that they have no relevance to our existence which is an outright barbaric assumption or believe "As the builders say, the larger stones do not lie well without the lesser"Plato.We all depend on each other no mater how wealthy or famous you are you still need people who are not up to your social class in the society to gain enough strength to carry on and thats unity"In union there is strength"Aesop Fabulet, when we unit like the broom sticks unite to perform the function of cleaning then we are not easily broken and we would also be able to do some cleansing, thereby providing the platform for us to cling on each other for strength.
                 "So powerful is the light of unity that it can illuminate the whole earth" Bahaullah, UNITY BRINGS PEACE CLOSER, LET UNITY DWELL AMONG US ALL.
