Tolerance: A Guide For Humans Nowadays people has a big problem relating to each other. This problem is called intolerence, this is considered a negative value which prevents sometimes that people can relate with others. We can identify an intolerant person because the person has a dislike in certain aspects that are not t the same between another person or a group of them. Usually the causes for the intolerance are that a person does not have the same ideas, religion,points of view and in some cases the social class and other aspects; all these factors are related with a person that is intolerant in different situations, but , how to be tolerant? How can we understand that tolerance is the right way for solving a problem? In accordance with the dictionary of the University of Cambridge, tolerance can be defined as: “Willingness to accept behavior and beliefs that are different from your own, although you might not agree with or approve of them”. Tolerance, principally can create an atmosphere of solidarity among all the people in general, children, parents, grandparents, cause intolerance, but if they change their perspective, they can leave all the differences among all the people and they could forget the main disagreement with each other. Tolerance has been represented in different aspects that can make people see aspects to be tolerant can be helpful, not only for obtaining a personal benefit because with this value, if everybody works for a pacific relation, all the societies could get out with a lot of benefits. We have been able to observe at the school and the teachers can show us some of the different places where we can find the promotion of the tolerance, for example, now we can find in different ways like in images, songs, books, T.V, etc. One of the main examples is the court opinion that was written by William J. Brennan, which expresses a sense of tolerance between the court and the principal character Gregory Johnson Lee. But, why does the text talk about tolerance? Because it is a story where if observe clearly the judge applies justice for his view point. The government tries to understand all the problem that Johnson caused when he burned the flag. The government thinks that they cannot prohibit that the people expresses, but the form that Johnson made it, maybe it was not right. In the text, we can observe two phrases that can help us to understand better the text in the tolerance context: “The government may not prohibit the expression of an idea because just society is the idea itself offensive or disagreeable. “The way to preserve the flag’s role is not to punish those who think differently about these matters. It is to persuade them that they are wrong.” Now we can observe and analyze specifically that tolerance is an important factor for that the society can be in total peace and harmony, without affecting more people with our discomfort that another person does not think or has certain similar characteristics with you. Tolerance like in the text will help you to accept and resist all the attitudes and opinions of another person.

I REMEMBER YOU BY: Pablo Neruda I remember as you were last autumn. You were the grey beret and the calm heart. In your eyes the lights of the twilight fought. And the leaves fell in the water of your soul. Clinging to my arms like a climbing vine, the leaves recognized your voice, slow and calm. Bonfire of stupor in which my thirst burned. Sweet blue hyacinth twisted about my soul. I feel your eyes travel and distant is the autumn: grey beret, a bird's voice, and a house's heart to where my deepest longings flew and my kisses fell joyously like glowing embers. Sky from a ship. Field from the hills. Your memory is of light, of smoke, of the calm pool! Beyond your eyes burned the twilights. Dry autumn leaves twisted in your soul.
