My 4-year old niece, Aubree, asked me to pick her up so she could see herself in the mirror. She looked at our reflection and hugged my face. “We are the same!”, she said. She has blond hair and blue eyes. I absolutely don’t.
Kids are amazing because the first thing they see are our similarities. They bring people together. Adults immediately look for differences and divide people. Let’s let kids lead, in our daily lives and on the world stage. We are so much more like all people than we realize. There is always common ground.
