This video speaks of importance of National Unity and only seeing the good points in our fellow Jew.
Different observant leaders need to meet together and talk, so they can understand each other and connect with each other. Plus, like Moshe says, we should all see the good in our fellow Jews. Of course we need to resolve issues and problems for sure, but in general, when we look at someone's good qualities, it encourages the person to continue their good traits. - We are one nation with the Torah which has carried us through/ May we strengthen ourselves in both unity and Torah

I got this From Chabad.org
By Tzvi Freeman
I don't feel that that I have any right to pray to G-d. I'm not religious at all. Over the years, I've committed many sins. Since I've turned against G-d and transgressed His commandments, how can I approach Him in Prayer?
Each morning, when we wake up, we say in our prayers, "My G-d, the soul You gave me is pure..."
No matter what you do with your life, your soul remains pure. Even at the time you are committing the worst crime, your soul screams inside like a captive woman, remaining faithful to her Beloved Above.
And now you want to take away from her that last opportunity to scream out loud for help?

The Torah is not only history or nice lessons, but also laws and instructions for life. :) G-d tells us in every area of life, the kind of ethics and values we should have and the laws to keep, in order to have a meaningful life, connect to G-d, and spread light through the world. Plus, G-d tells us in the Torah that peace will come if we return to Him and follow His ways.
Just take one step at a time and we can each reach our goals. We might slip up, but we can still stand up and go back on track
In life we can either let our situations bring us down, and focus on that. Or we can focus on being positive and enjoy what we have. If that homeless person that we met at a bus-stop can still be positive, then imagine how much more so, we should all be positive and be grateful for things like shelter, food, clothing, family, friends etc. Plus, when each of us help others in some way, we are doing our part to bring light to the world.
In general, we should all respect each other. That doesn't mean assimilate and intermarry, since blending in tends to distract us from our own heritage and our people become less. But we should still be nice to one another, while staying true to ourself. :)
