FREE BOOK: Healing America Begins with You: Bridging Cultural Gaps - Composer Sabrina Pena Young

Healing America Begins with You: Bridging Cultural Gaps - Composer Sabrina Pena YoungA way we can help heal our society: 

Take the time to make at least three meaningful relationships with individuals of other cultures. The type of relationship where you go to each other's houses for meals, call when you have a rough day, have playdates and go camping together. 

When your idea of a cultural group is based on a relationship and not movies, TV, the #news, or Twitter, you will avoid falling into the trap of lumping individuals together into stereotypes. You will be able to recognize the nuances and individualism that makes each person unique and responsible for themselves, not an entire people group.

I have had my own cultural stereotypes broken by moving around the country, being involved in communities that I would have never been a part of. I am wiser for it. I have more empathy because of it.
