Humanity is diverse. We need only look around us to see that. And it's our differences that make us unique.
Unfortunately, all too often some focus on those differences and use them to keep people apart, rather than using them to bring us together.
Just because we don't believe as someone else does, just because we might dress differently, just because we might speak a different language or just because we might have a different color skin - none of that makes one person any better than another.
We are all God's children. And that means all of us - not just a few.
At Saturday's Cultural Diversity Festival, people from all cultures - both young and old - celebrated those differences. It was a special day because everyone rejoiced in what it is that makes us diverse.
Greater Campbellsville United hosts the annual multicultural festival with help from local businesses and organizations.
Throughout the day, there were booths representing different cultures, offering a chance to taste foods from many different lands, as well as fun games and activities for children.
People of all ages, cultures and beliefs came together Saturday afternoon to celebrate their differences.
One would hope that with greater diversity also comes greater tolerance, but we realize that's not always the case. Teaching tolerance and acceptance must begin at home.
But to be able to teach it, we must also understand it.
Thanks, GCU, for helping us to celebrate our differences.
As much as we would wish that every baby is born healthy, life doesn't always happen like that. That's why groups such as the March of Dimes are so important.
The March of Dimes is a nonprofit health organization that works to give all babies a chance. Its mission is to improve babies' health by preventing birth defects and infant mortality.
And to help raise the money necessary for research and education, Saturday was the annual March of Dimes "March for Babies," which is held in more than 1,000 communities across the nation.
Congrats to those who participated in raising more than $7,000. What a great way to help babies have a fighting chance.
