“Dad!, look there!” exclaimed Jay, “Tyrannosaurs! Isn’t he awesome?”

I smiled and nodded and led my son to the exhibit.

“Look Jay, this is the skeleton of the dinosaur. The picture behind is how he will look with all muscles, flesh, eyes, legs and all”

My son looked at the exhibit for a long time and then said, “But Dad, this one is brown. The picture of Tyrannosaurs in my book is kind of black. How can that be?”

I smiled at my son, “Son, both the black and the brown T.Rexes have the same skeleton inside. The structure inside is what makes the T.Rex look like that.

Just like there are so many people you see, some tall, some short, some different skin colours too. But the skeleton inside every person is the same.

All people have the same love, hope, dreams, and faith inside.

We are all the same”

My son smiled. I did too.
