Different people, different cultures, different ideas, different religions, different faiths yet we all live together; maybe that is why we have a lack of peace and harmony in our world.
However, what we do have is a diverse culture that brings new innovations, advancements and a deeper understanding for others. I am not about tolerance but about acceptance and love. We should try to love and learn from those we do not understand. Tolerance is not enough! To love our neighbor we need to know our neighbors and then we can love them right where they are.
America should not be a place of conformity but a melting pot of cultures, ideas and people.
