Sophomore, History Major with a Specialization in International Relations
Today’s reading says “Forsake foolishness that you may live; advance in the way of understanding.” (Prv. 9: 1-6). In all nations and cultures, people are grouped together in the eyes of others through stereotypes- singled out because of beliefs or lifestyles which are different from those that the accuser practices. This is largely due to a lack of the will to understand not only the other cultures across the globe, but the people that represent these cultures and their individual personalities. The relationships that we need to survive cannot only be about mutual likes or dislikes, but about attempting to understand and comprehend others and build a mutual trust. Whether or not the thought is enjoyed, all are children of God, and it is within everyone’s human dignity to have the chance to build these relationships.
