“Our true nationality is mankind”, a sentence from H.G.Wells, means a lot. We can be from different countries but we are all the same. We are humans. Some people don’t think like this, because sometimes the country they live in is powerful in economy and military gear, and they think their country is the best. It’s not like this.
We are all made of flesh and bones, but with different skin colours and other different characteristics, and these differences don’t make us better than others nor the country we live in. We must help who needs. If we do that the world becomes a better place to live in. We don’t need to be racist, we don’t need war. We just need peace, tolerance and friendship. Simple as that. It isn’t a hard task. We can all try to do it in our everyday life. It’s a shame for our species that we haven’t behaved like mankind yet.
