There’s a lot of conflict in the world at the moment. And historically when that happens we get a bit afraid; we put up the walls and draw bigger distinctions between us and them.
But connecting with other cultures - even within our own cities - is a great antidote. As we enlarge our world, more of the planet and more of the people on it begin to feel like ‘home’. It reminds us that we are both important and yet insignificant; that despite vastly different circumstances, we live in parallel with seven billion others whose lives are of equal value to our own.
