Shout It Loud! We Are Not Alone!
by Mrs. Patricia Simms
As is the case with fruit, people are often prone to look at one another and make assumptions without taking the time to get to know what lies within. People—and fruit!—get marginalized and discounted because they don’t look the same, talk the same, or act the same as me or you.
But while we are blindly passing judgement, we are missing what’s important: what makes us each special and gives us purpose. No matter the shape, size, color, or creed, we all have something to offer!
So, let’s look beyond appearances to what lies deeper, break down those misconceptions prejudice has taught us and society perpetuates, and celebrate diversity!
