We go through life often avoiding contact with people we perceive as different from us.  Differences such as race, language, politics or economics are barriers used to partition us. I have discovered that when I get past my own fears and insecurities, and take a step towards embracing people and cultures that are different than my own,  I discover a wonderful place where our mutual needs and aspirations are quite similar.  My life is enriched by this experience.
