What do you do?
I didn't grow up in Utah. It was a bit of shock to move here and experience how much people look the same. It seems brown hair may make you a minority. Now I am raising my family here and I am constantly trying to broaden their horizons so they can see and understand other people and cultures. Consequently, we have lively discussions about the world and the different places one may live. This past week I realized I was failing at this task when my four year went up to a child his age at the park who happened to be of African descent and said, "Is this Africa?" as he touched her beautiful black skin. I still have a lot of work to do!
