Elderly Man’s Remark About Woman’s Family Leaves Her Stunned.
We’ve sure come an awful long way, but there is still color prejudice in this old world, and maybe… just maybe… that can be eliminated altogether in our lifetimes.
Now, when I was a youngster, about a hundred years ago, one of the first songs I was taught had the verse in it “red and yellow, black and white, they are precious in his sight. Jesus loves the little children of the world. Whether you’re religious or not, you should realize that when we go beyond the color of our skin, we are all the same. And that should be in everyone’s sight.
A while back, Jessica and her husband adopted three beautiful children – two boys and a girl. And practically everywhere they went, they would get stares, and not of the kind type.
And last summer, as the whole family was enjoying some hamburgers at a restaurant, an elderly man started staring at them. He was staring at a man and woman with white skin, and the three little children with them had dark skin. Then that man started walking toward them. Jessica just knew it was about to go beyond stares and right into the gutter of prejudice. She was sure that that older man was going to say something negative about a white couple having three black children. Jessica braced herself.
Then, the elderly man shook her husband’s hand and said, “I just wanted to tell you that you have such a beautiful family.”
Jessica was stunned, and tears rolled down her cheeks. And she realized that maybe times WERE changing for the better, and more and more people are understanding that love doesn’t come with a color; it comes with an open heart.
