Thoughts on Diversity

Difference is of the essence of humanity. Difference is an accident of birth and it should therefore never be the source of hatred or conflict. The answer to difference is to respect it. Therein lies a most fundamental principle of peace: respect for diversity.– John Hume, Irish Politician, 1998 Nobel Peace Prize Winner, 1999 Defender of Democracy Award, 2001 Gandhi Peace Prize

Thoughts on Diversity

Cultural differences should not separate us from each other, but rather cultural diversity brings a collective strength that can benefit all of humanity…. Intercultural dialogue is the best guarantee of a more peaceful, just and sustainable world.– Robert Alan, American writer, artist and social activist
