End of the Rainbow by Bill Miller Politics, religion, racism, and sexuality are just some of the issues that force us to live in a world filled with madness and hate. All of these are controversial topics, but they don’t have to be, nor should they. Yet, we will fight and even kill just because someone else’s opinions and beliefs are different from our own. It’s impossible to understand the human mind, what makes us tick, and what sets us off. We are all so different, not referencing physical makeup or genetics, but our thought processes, behavioral patterns, what we believe in, and why. Most of us don’t even pay attention to ourselves, and most of the things that we do are second nature—born of habit and then done instinctively because we have been a certain way for so long. The friction that exists between the peoples of the world today will not die but will be sustained and nourished by hate and vengeance until we learn to take control of ourselves and be the people that we should be.
