Today, and every day, I challenge you all to inclusion, acceptance, and understanding. I challenge you to make a new friend, communicate in a new way, expand your knowledge and experience and above all, be kind. Ask questions, do research, and do not ignore differences. Lets start 2018 with more open dialogue because everyone deserves to feel loved and accepted.
Here’s what some other people say about inclusion and acceptance:
“Coming together is a beginning: keeping together is progress; working together is success.” -Henry Ford
“Love isn’t a state of perfect caring. It is an active noun like struggle. To love someone is to strive to accept that person exactly the way he or she is, right here and now.” -Mr. Rogers
“You are imperfect, you are wired for struggle, but you are worthy of love and belonging.” -Brene Brown
“The world is no real home without all of us here.” -Brian Andreas
