Embracing diversity

"The underlying struggle is between worlds of plenty and worlds of want; between the modern and the ancient; between those who embrace our teeming, colliding, irksome diversity, whilst still insisting on a set of values that binds us together, and those who would seek, under whatever flag or slogan or sacred text, a certainty and simplification that justifies cruelty towards those not like us."

Blessed be the embracers for they shall take risks.

The quote is from Barack Obama's book " Dreams From My Father".
