Let’s stop hating each other and remember that we’re all in this world together.

Julius Lester, a Newberry award winning children’s author, keeps a human skull on his desk to remind him that we are all alike underneath our superficial differences. In his memoir, On Writing for Children and Other People, he says that in our “skullness,” we “exist beyond and separate from defintions of gender, race, and all the socio-political definitions which hang from our limbs and rattle like the chains of Jacob Marley’s ghost.” What a great writer!
