    I believe that implicitly. We only grow through connection with others. We learn through our elders, be it families or friends. Who knows when I will need some help with the door... if I cannot do it for someone else, how can I expect someone to do it for me. I am a teacher in a very diverse school.(I was called the little white teacher... but my big kids loved me, I valued them, smiled with them, cried with them) Being kind is not hard; having a heart and empathy is not hard. It is harder to hate.
