It’s a harsh world we live in.
Diversity acceptance should be the norm – but it’s not. We rarely accept our own differences – the ones that make us unique, let alone accept what is foreign to us or is a challenge to our norms.
How we deal with encountering diversity will measure us:
- We can either look the other way,
- Engage awkwardly as if some “kindly act”,
…..or perhaps we simply open our arms and hearts and listen and learn.
