With the recent news where white nationalist rallied and killed one person in Charlottesville, Virginia it is hopeful to hear news that the most liked tweet of all time promotes unity, diversity and love over hate. It is more evidence that we as a society want unity.
Former President Barack Obama who wrote the much liked tweet in response to the Charlottesville terror attack, that killed one woman. The tweet showed a photo of the former president, looking into a window where toddlers from different racial backgrounds looked and smiled back at him. To caption the photo, Obama tweeted these words from Nelson Mandela.
“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion…”
As of the writing over 3 million people liked the tweet and more that 2 million people retweeted it.

We celebrate when diversity and unity is at the forefront in society. In times when it seems hate is more common than love, tweets like these remind us that love can overcome hate.
The former president continued the tweet with more from Nelson Mandela and wrote:
“People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love…
“…For love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.” – Nelson Mandela
We at Unieros will continue highlighting these moments that bring us closer to a equal multicultural society.
