A native New Yorker, I grew up surrounded by people of different religions, races, and nationalities. I was lucky to live in a small town where I was accepted by all. Obviously my experience was not the norm. Raising a child in the South I will have more challenges. As a parent I am responsible for teaching my son to appreciate the differences; providing him with the knowledge that we can learn from each other regardless of our race, creed, religion or sexual orientation. Even when our "differences" are not appreciated by others.
Parenting ain't easy. This powerful video should be a must see for all parents.
