What TV Taught Me about Being Unique
Have you seen this Android commercial?
In this ad, a young man plays a very complex piano piece. When he switches to a piano where every key plays the same note, the beauty of the song is replaced by a monotony of meaningless sounds.
Android’s point, of course, is to challenge Apple’s monopoly on smartphones, but the commercial brings home an important truth about each and every one of us: It’s okay to be unique and stand apart from the crowd.
We’re all part of the same human family. That means we must stand up for each other and help each other. We must give voice to those people who cannot speak for themselves.
When people say offensive things about that quiet guy nobody talks to or the girl who gets bullied about her weight, we need to be the ones who break away from the monotones and say something.
God created every human being as unique and different from anyone else. There will never be another you, me, Steve Jobs, Adele, or George Washington. Our uniqueness begins in the depths of our cells in our own distinct DNA.
If a piano were missing even one note, would the music retain its beauty?
Just imagine for a second a world without one person you know: your best friend, your mom, your grandfather, or your next door neighbor. Because of abortion, millions of our neighbors, friends, and relatives are missing and can never be replaced. They suffered an injustice that took their lives before they even saw daylight.
That’s why we have to do something to stop abortion.
Don’t play the same note as everybody else. Even if all of your friends think abortion is okay, that doesn’t make it right. Use your voice to help protect defenseless preborn babies. Join nationwide pro-life events such as National Pro-Life T-Shirt Day or The March for Life. Spread the message by sharing information about pro-life youth organizations on social media. You could even start your own pro-life club! The options are endless.
Together, we can make our world a better, more beautiful place.
