The ability to EMBRACE differences is the foundation of a successful civilization.

Artist Statement

Our planet is filled with different people that are different in every way imaginable, yet so much alike. In our limited wisdom we sometimes take our brilliance for granted, not realizing that without the genius of others we could not truly enjoy life. Every nation has a responsibility to prepare its citizens to reach the threshold of human kindness. It is within the gates of this plight that we must learn to embrace out differences and understand how important the elements of diversity are to a meaningful life. We are One Planet, One People - and the world belongs to everyone.
