Tonight, in the Olympic broadcast, Bob Costas said, "Even though our countries have fundamental differences, there is so much to admire in the people of China and so much to learn from them."
What an important statement with broad implications. Even though groups of people may have fundamental differences, there is always something to admire. There is always something to learn from each other. Wouldn't the world be a better place if we could always keep that in mind? Wouldn't we better teachers if we could always keep that in mind? Better friends. Better citizens. Better community members. Better people.
