Defying Differences By: Dima Ghalili
Updated: Apr 21
Being lucky enough to have been a multi cultured child I see the world as one country and myself as a world citizen. We are living in a world that has never been more connected, yet, people are concentrated on each other’s differences rather than all the similarities we have. Finding causes for disunity rather than seeing the common goal we all want to reach together, and focusing on the different ways we want to get there. I believe that if we all were to forget the borders that separate us whether it be the physical ones or the ones we build in our head, we would be able to love each other regardless of what we call ourselves (Christian, Muslim, Democrat, Republican), because at the end of the day we are all one family. The families we are born into shouldn’t be what define us, yet they are. And the only real way to overcome that, is to think of the entire world as one family. That way we will be treated with love, and given equal opportunity for education, wealth, and spirituality.
