Look around us, in our country, don’t we see evidence of multiculturalism? Look at our buildings, our way of dressing, our food, and a basic thing as our calendar! It surrounds us and it is us! It is who we are as a people! As a people, we should be proud of it and we should celebrate it! Let’s celebrate it! Let me paint the picture and you enjoy looking at this story unfold!
