“The less you know, the less you think about things, the simpler life is, and the happier you are ” that’s ignorance.
I see people shy away from the homeless & feel like the only thing that existed was inside the state lines of their “narrow minds”. Meaning… that just because you may not drive pass 50 homeless people a day doesn’t mean they don’t exist. This is what’s wrong with our world.
It was not until I was 8 that I learned that the American flag was, in fact, not the Utah flag and that it was not the ONLY flag.
I was taught to call the grocery store on the reservation where u lived the “Mucket Market” which apparently is an extremely racial term to Native Americans?? I had no idea.
I would get anxiety around large crowds of different ethnicity’s, specifically Asians, for the majority of my younger years.
I would avoid people & smile if they spoke a different language. Immediately in judgement. I was being raised racist & ignorant. Now that I am a mom, it is my responsibility to teach my kids everything that I had to learn the hard way. It is up to me to provide experiences that show them that there is more to the world than our 4 walls. This is one of many reasons why travel is important to me.
This is why I make it a priority in my life.
And I haven’t even scratched the surface yet.
