Diversities make us more Tolerant?

These are three English children, aged eight, eight and four.

Their parents are immigrants who moved to London in the UK from Italy and South America. They speak two or three languages to perfection. If we think that some of us find, speaking only one quite hard already, it is already remarkable. But this is not the main point. What is most impressive is how normal they see what many would define extraordinary.

This is the true celebration of diversity, the curiosity to learn new things without any fear for the unknown. Openness to others, respect and tolerance towards different habits are the normality, and they share all of it with others.

Next time someone tries to make us believe that for our children is better a school where there are not (or at least not many) children of immigrants … I hope we will know what to answer.
