I was raised to believethat learning never ends through places like Chautauqua where people have different opinions and experiences. I was raised to believe ALL PEOPLE have an equal amount of worth as I do. I had a mixture of races of dolls, for example. This was back before people were aware of the importance of diversity. My parents were ahead of the times and it’s made me a person who strives to put others first while expanding my knowledge of the world around me.
