We see a lot of destructive focus on our differences in many places today.
The beauty in diversity is the respect we should be showing to each other. I was scrolling through YouTube today and came across a song called “Why”, I had not heard of the artist before and so I figured I would watch it. This is video and song were the impetus for this post.
As the young man in the song explains the reason some people don’t think they belong together is because of their differences. There is magic or synergy that happens when people from different backgrounds come together to work on a project they are committed too. If we look at Silicon Valley, there is a huge number of success stories that come out of the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s. We can look at Apple, Google, and HP as examples of people with differences coming together to make amazing things!
