Do you think that differences in cultures, traditions and ways of life make our world beautiful?

What do you think?? We belong to different background and culture so we must interact and get to know each other. We will discover beautiful and new things.
One of the things that makes life beautiful is difference. We are people from different backgrounds, cultures, traditions and colors. We share one blood and we are all equal since we are all humans. Difference makes us curious to get to know each other in this small world. As mature people, we should realize the fact that no one is superior or inferior to one another. All people differ in mentality, religion and traditions, but they share a lot in common. We should not make this slight difference a barrier that could separate humans from each other. It is so nice to travel and get to know the different cultures in this world to experience the beauty of difference, and to expand our knowledge of the cultural differences. We should take into consideration that tolerance is a key or way toward the interaction between cultures. If we are tolerant that means we accept the other, and the other would definitely accept us. The more you live, the more you learn about life and how to deal with developments that occur everyday.
