Our connectedness to each other ultimately has nothing to do with states [nations]…. Our relationship to the other is that we are brothers and sisters; we’re humans. I’m a human, you’re a human. You’re in the image of God, I’m in the image of God. I was struck recently reading writings from Native Americans at the time that they were gradually being murdered and rounded up and moved off their land and so on. And they always called the settlers “our white brothers,” even when they were talking about the murderous things that had been unleashed on them, even when they were talking about their village being slaughtered. They would call them “our white brothers….” It was staggering.
