“There were never in the world two opinions alike, any more than two hairs or two grains. Their most universal quality is diversity” said Michel Eyquem de Montaigne.

Diversity caused a unique branding of the United States of America. Here, citizens from all over the world wove the threads of skills and knowledge while sharing multiple views and respect at the same time. Isn’t that why we refer to our nation as the melting pot? The concept of melting pot brought colors, tastes, strengths and intelligence, just to name a few. I feel that diversity has always existed in our culture, and yet… have we all been prone to this idea at a deeper level? Change as well as acceptance should sprout within an individual’s heart and head before expecting the society to comply. We have experienced for centuries that the cart before the horse is not functional, yes?
