The Teaching of Diversity

Diversity connects us
As we discover our differences
We realize our similarities
Traveling to different destinations
Our bond strengthens and grows
As we learn about our ancestors
And those who inhabited this land before us.
Through storytelling and images,
We make connections to the teachings
Connections to each other
And connections to the land.
Bringing our different cultures
Into our experiences
And changing the way we each view
The unceeded territory we walk upon
Forever in my heart,
Will these memories stay
Each painful, happy,
significant and empowering
moments of my friends’ lives
That they wholeheartedly share with me,
pushes and encourages me
To be a better educator
and a better person.
Planting seeds into the
Ever expanding minds
Of the children we encounter
Strong powerful women
From china
And Canada
Internationally United
as one with the same goal
To embark on a journey
Of knowledge
Teaching and learning
From the younger generation

I so appreciate your poem, Sarina. Poetry is such a powerful language of activism, but unfortunately it is often undermined! I remember your poetry from 173!
