We are a dynamic species with rich, complex histories. Let’s try to understand the culture of others, not on our own cultural terms, but rather, on theirs. What is considered “normal” to one, may be rude or bizarre to another. It is important that each of us work to better understand the other.

Through understanding we may find appreciation. We must recognize and preserve the languages and cultures that are found in every region of every country throughout the world — acknowledging the identity, music, cuisine, environment and spirit of each.

Be curious. Preserve the old. Embrace the new. The unknown is not to be feared, but to be discovered with an open heart. So discover the beauty in all people and places throughout the world.
