Years ago, I started a “playgroup”. What it really became, was a way to grow among diverse women. We were not the same. We did not look the same, or come from the same backgrounds. We did not even come from the same countries. I love and embrace other cultures. The hardest thing for me to realize is that not everyone can embrace differences. I hope that if there is one thing I can teach my children, it is to accept others for who they are. Whatever they believe in, whoever they love, and whatever shade they happen to be. We have a long way to go.
“It is time for parents to teach young people early on that in diversity there is beauty and there is strength.” ~Maya Angelou
