4. You're not alone. I love it, too.

Where I live there is no real majority. There are immigrants from all over the world. We have a Tibetan Buddhist temple less than a mile away. There are two mosques in our not-very-large city. At any coffee shop you can hear and see four or five languages being used. (Big School for the Deaf here, so plenty of Deaf culture, too!)

There are restaurants featuring food from all over the world. There are festivals and events celebrating many styles of dance and music.

It's not always kumbayah nicey-nice. There are conflicts with old roots, plenty of snarking in the local newspaper's comments and LTE sections. But by and large, we get on. And I love it here.

It would be SO boring if we were all the same.

happily,
Bright
