Living with Differences: The Death of Diversity

While the term diversity continues to roll-off the tongues of many educators across the globe, the word diversity has become a mere buzzword. Presently, it is a theory awaiting realization… a centrifugal force projecting segregation rather than a celebration of difference. It’s breakdown ensues when the perceptions straddling the cultural boundary…

The hands

The hands is a capturing of a diversity. When looking at a country like South Africa one is able to see the progression through time.

Taking it a step further because we are creatives we unite through creativity.…

Old vs Young. Or Old + Young?

There is one difference which we see and feel everyday. Disparities between different age groups lead us everywhere, especially in the family. Old sometimes misunderstood young, youngsters do not have empathy for adults because of lack of experience.

As a result of poverty in Haiti, children at a very young age begin to help to bring food to the table. One of their most common tasks is to work on the fields. The hard work that they engage in, in my opinion, should not be considered as child labor for it is what keeps them alive. Consequently, they do not have the time or the means to get an education.
