Tolerance – The Way To Peace

“One moment of patience may ward off great disaster.
One moment of impatience may ruin a whole life.”
Chinese proverb

In a democratic society, tolerance is a fundamental right for happiness to exist.  Even if we get to the point that we feel we need to say something then we must learn to say whatever is on our minds with a certain amount of beauty, poise and love.

A society that is tolerant of each other will grow and prosper with a feeling of togetherness and peace. Every ambition can be realized and every dream fulfilled. A tolerant society is a healthy society, which will go forward with purpose.

Being tolerant of each other and caring for each other is what makes us human.  By teaching tolerance, we allow individuality and diversity while promoting peace and a civil society.  Every person of every religion has an obligation to uphold the meaning of tolerance.  In fact, tolerance is a major belief within religion; however, it is not always practiced. 

In the multi-cultural society, that we live in it is very important to understand the needs and benefits of tolerance. We should realize that in most cases it is far easier to change our own attitudes rather than getting frustrated over failed efforts in changing the attitude of others. In this manner, we develop the skills in becoming individuals who are more tolerant.
