Presented by Debra J. Bolton, Ph.D. Extension Specialist

Have you ever heard these statements? “They’re not like us.” “They don’t have our values.” “We invited them, but they’re not interested, so they don’t come.” “They just don’t care about doing better.” You may recognize these comparisons. Why are such statements made? Is there a lack of understanding? Do you recognize fear in any of the statements? Perhaps we fear what we do not understand. Do we interact with those we fear or do not understand? How do we break down the barriers of fear, misunderstanding, and judgment? If “they” are “not like us”, do we take the time and/or the steps to learn more about others? Hopefully, the answer is “yes”.
