Thoughts on Diversity

Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.– Maya Angelou, African-American Poet, Civil Rights Leader, National Women's Hall of Fame

Thoughts on Diversity

An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.– Martin Luther King, Jr.
