Dear editor, As a postscript to the successful and poignant march celebrating human diversity in Halton recently (which my family and I hope will become an annual event), I thought it important to point something out to those persons who truly believe their "race" is superior to others'. As detailed in the excellent PBS documentary Journey of Man (2003) science has recently proven that all human beings originate from African tribes that undertook various journeys throughout Europe, Asia, Australia and ultimately North and South America within the last 50,000 years (a very fast time frame considering how old the planet is itself). Since this appears to be the case, I submit to Halton residents: when and if you direct insecurities, biases and hatred toward a fellow human, you are in effect, hating yourselves-- and what good can come of that? An attitude is far easier to change than the firm reality of our shared bloodline and DNA. My family congratulates the coordinators of the wonderful diversity march and picnic. We look forward to more events of this nature in Georgetown. P. Roe, Georgetown
