All Shades of Color — A Poem to a Friend Who Sent a Note About a Jewish Guy Who Befriended A Black Guy at a Conference

“I said that since humans came from Africa and migrated to all
parts of the world, their skin color changed so that they could
survive in their new environment. Therefore, we are all shades
of color and we are all One Race…”

I’ve been thinking and appreciating —
appreciating and embracing
our friendship since we
met in fifth grade.
How rare is that —
a friendship that doesn’t fade.
