There are no nations! There is only humanity. And if we don’t come to understand that right soon, there will be no nations, because there will be no humanity.
Cultural diversity is a complex issue that society deals with. In so many countries and places the diversity in culture has placed a significant difference and conflict among people. The rise of wars,conflicts and disagreement, for the major part has been a result of our differences.
But diversity is a beautiful thing. Martin Luther king said, 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.
Celebrating different cultures bring to light new thinking and understanding. People need to understand there is never a right or wrong way- what is ok is that we are all different and we learn and grow together.
The world is a multi cultural society. However, it is not enough to merely accept or tolerate those who are different to us. we must celebrate what makes us different, and find joy in our uniqueness.
Diversity is not about how we differ. Diversity is about embracing one another’s uniqueness.
Benefits of Cultural diversity
One of the greatest benefits of celebrating diversity is that it helps us overcome sterotypes. The dangers of sterotypes is not that it is untrue, but it is incomplete. Stereotyping encourages us to make assumptions about others, which can be incorrect and hurtful.
When we celebrate our differences, and are open to our diversity, we allow our preconceived notions to be proven wrong. We accept people for who they are, not what we think they should be.
Celebrating diversity helps us understand that the world is different. It helps us understand that we are all unique people, but we live together on this earth collectively. It enables us to embrace our shortcomings and opens us up to accept others for theirs.
Finally celebrating diversity will make the world a better place . Imagine a world where different groups of people live in harmony and unity. This will only be possible of we understand ourselves and celebrate our differences.
This is why I celebrate diversity and you should too..
