The Key to a Peaceful World is to Embrace Diversity
If there is one course that every man and woman’s breath should support, it is this. A future paradigm crucial to the preservation of mankind. A mantra supporting equal rights for all people. A shift of mindset that will make you a better, happier person.
My mother used to tell me; “Kwabena, when you cry, please be sure to dry your eyes”—As I grew up, I better understood why she kept saying that to me. All she meant
was there are better days ahead, but then prejudice and unfair assumptions are the enemy of everyone. How can we overcome them? We must consciously embrace diversity; that is, we must appreciate the richness of difference that exists in our human family, empathize with all types of people, and wage war against discrimination.
Saeeda Wright (Artist) once asked- “What happened to Love? What happened to Family,? What happened to Community?- So many people have died or been deprived of basic rights because of lack of understanding — an understanding that difference in appearance, belief, or way of life does not make one person better than another. One of the great challenges facing organizations is getting all employees, from the CEO to the hourly workers, to realize that to become the best, they have to embrace diversity. Let people feel valued, respected and have the same opportunities as others. This is what will keep the world a better place for mankind.
Lets unite through the echoing sounds of the long standing drums, and the gestures of appreciation and Love—this will create a rhythmic life and a single movement at a time, let’s move in unison accompanied with harmony!

THOUGHT FOR ALL
Befriend all people-If you know that you tend to avoid being friends with certain types of people, go out of your way to find all kinds..
Empathy- When you encounter anyone, try to imagine, understand and sympathize with that per-sons story, with every-thing that has made them who they are.
