I am open-minded and culturally fascinated. I'm fascinated by how cultures and languages affect and reflect people's beliefs and attitudes. I do not like conflict and trust in peaceful resolution. Diplomacy succeeds so many times where quarreling and accusations waste time, energy and are harmful to causes. I am an educator and will always wish to assist people to help themselves, no matter their origins. Languages provide us with tools for communication that enable that empathy and work. I believe that most religions have similar beliefs with different names and that we can always learn from each other if we take time to listen. Many politicians have similar goals with different attitudes and methods. I truly believe that we need to concentrate on our commonalities to preserve this treasure we call Earth for our children.
