I once read a very powerful story in which 3 different children were asked to draw each others' mothers. From the results of the drawings, something breathtaking was observed. Non of the 3 children had put emphasis on purely physical aspects such as skin colour. Rather, emphasis was put on the mothers' smiles, eyes and purity of their skin. These are all characteristics symbolizing love and peace. Children are pure by nature and it is only through nurture, where they may begin to develop a 'negative perspective' on differences. Let's work together to protect this sacred value children posses and promote pluralism!
