We have been so fortunate to see all parts of the world and no matter what city or pasture we find ourselves in, what never fails to strike us is how similar we all really are.

There may be some language and cultural variations, but we have the same basic human needs, human wants, and human desires.  If more people had the opportunity to see other parts of the world (or even took the time to see other parts of their own neighborhoods), we can’t help but think there would be a lot more peace and understanding.

 

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes. ~ Marcel Proust

    I have been fortunate to be able to travel to several countries, and yes, I think that all of humankind is alike in basic ways. I always come back to the USA with a much greater appreciation of how very lucky and blessed we are here.
