Gentle Scouters: I found this on the wall of the Counseling Office in a school I subbed at, and did some research to find the source (no one in the office knew. It was just a poster). This is credited to = Amy Maddox, age 16, Franklin Community High School, Bargerville IN =
It seems she was 16 about 15 years ago .
“Underneath, We’re All the Same”
“He prayed -- It wasn’t my religion.
He ate -- It wasn’t what I ate.
He spoke -- It wasn’t my language.
He dressed -- It wasn’t what I wore.
He took my hand -- It wasn’t the color of mine.
But when he laughed -- it was how I laughed,
And when he cried -- it was how I cried.”
