We’re much more alike than we think so why is society’s first instinct to immediately hide anything that lies remotely outside of the norm?
A lot of problems and misunderstanding in the world disappears when we talk to each other instead of about each other. Have you ever stop to wonder if the issue isn’t that immigrant families are failing to assimilate enough into Canadian life. It’s that they’re already Canadian citizens, but their white neighbours refuse to accept that they belong here.
We really shouldn’t judge anyone. First of all, we aren’t perfect ourselves. Secondly, we don’t see the entire story. Unless we become omniscient and perfect beings, we really should keep our mouth shut when it comes to being judgmental.
“Sometimes we only see how people are different from us. But it you look hard enough you can see how much we’re all alike.” – Jasmine, Aladdin
Let’s be humble and never think that we are better than anyone else.
I am fighting for a world in which everyone has the same rights and is treated with respect.
No one is superior. No one is inferior. That doesn’t mean that we are all the same. People are unique and incomparable. We need to embrace our similitude and our differences.
Diversity is having a seat at the table, inclusion is having a voice, and belonging is having that voice be heard. @LizandMollie
