Words about each other

So, lets see.
God put us on this earth with each other.
He put us here so we can _____________ .
What?
Why did he put us here together?

Well, I just finished watching the news and getting caught up on my facebook news feed.

According to the news reports and my news feed, God put us on this earth with each other so we can
Call each other names.
Ignore each other.
Kill each other.
Beat each other up.
Hate each other.
Be disgusted about each other's...
religious views
political views
&
sexual views.
Be intolerant of each other's choices.
Talk bad about each other on...
facebook
blogs
the internet
behind each other's backs
in front of each other's faces
&
in front of news cameras.
Discriminate against each other.
Criticize each other.
Make fun of each other's...
weight
clothing choices
sexual orientation
standards
&
beliefs.
Be jealous of each other.
Complain about each other.
Steal each other's belongings.
Steal each other's children.
Steal each other's significant other.
Pretty much, it would seem that we are here to make each other miserable.

That makes me sad.

BUT

Whatever happened to remembering that we are ALL imperfect?
Whatever happened to cutting each other some slack?
At what point did someone make our minds believe that if someone thinks or lives differently than us that we have to hate them?
When exactly did we get the right to take things away from each other?  
When, in those brains, did it become ok to take away someone's life, stuff, loved ones, or someone's ability to choose for themselves?

Somewhere we got off track.

Maybe instead of posting that thing about our political views that makes those that believe differently than us feel stupid, we could just keep it to ourselves.
Maybe instead of showing hatred because a man loves a man or a woman loves a woman or a man loves a woman or a woman loves a man, we could just love and let love.
Maybe you could let me believe in God the way that I want to believe in Him.
Maybe I could learn more about and respect more of your religious views, or lack thereof.
Maybe we could look past choices and just love 
EACH OTHER.

Love the 
PERSON
rather than hating the 
CHOICES.

That could be nice.
