This Grandpa With Vitiligo Crochets Dolls For Children With The Same Condition

Whenever I think of a brighter future, I think of a time when everybody gets the same opportunities, regardless of their income, culture, religion, age, ability or race.

Instead of celebrating diversity, we’ve ended up twisting and judging differences, and alike attitudes fracture our society.

So, to create a world of unity and peace, we must recognize that everybody is shaped by communities, cultures, and experiences, therefore we must treat each other with understanding and empathy.

Let’s embrace diversity!
