Have you ever stopped to consider how diversity divides others because of their cultural differences but there are some common threads every culture share? Well, January 1, 2017 and everyday of each year new mercies are renewed. Everyone have the opportunity to make their day a positive difference. Why not consider starting today, the first day of this year, and each day thereafter a positive change which binds differences in a beautiful tapestry of diversity.
Happy New Year! Let’s try something new and positive!
If I could paint a picture of the world I desire,
it display a perfect tapestry of humanity.
I’d paint from a palette of shades of red, yellow,
black, brown, and white.
Each shade an intricate blend of exquisite details
depicting every feature, trait, and
characteristic representative of each culture.
I’d carefully intergrade each color
to ensure the colors flowed harmoniously
and perfectly in sync with the other.
I’ll smooth out the rough edges
until they are subdued,
muted, and not overbearing.
One would not stand out over the other.
I’d highlight the best features of each shade
I’ll make sure each is highlighted equally.
The breath-taking deep and rich hues
customized to reflect the diversity of humanity
a flawless rival to Leonardo da Vinci.
Something to Think About:
If wildflowers can flourish peacefully among other wildflowers and create a beautiful landscape, why can’t we flourish in the midst of diversity and create something beautiful and in harmony too?
Cultural diversity means there is a variety
of different cultural or ethnic groups.
THESE ARE THE FACES
OF CULTURAL DIVERSITY
To reject the meaning of cultural diversity
is to accept a false perception of humanity. Without the faces of diversity
no one can see and understand
the true meaning of human differences.

Blue, Green, Yellow, Red, White, and Orange combined represents diversity
Without vibrancy of diversity, values, multiculturalism, and worldviews,
imagine how bland things are if they’re either Blue or White.
