Beyond race, creed, color, nationality and personal narratives there is a universal humanity. Where is this? How do you go there?

The Martin Luther King speech which introduced into the zeitgeist the vision of children from different backgrounds and ethnicities all walking together holding hands on their way to school. This is a mental construct that I can create. In holding this image something in me is able to clarify and remind me of my place, of the framing that mentally makes available the mind of non-judgement.
