Honoring Differences

Thomas Paine, one of America’s founding fathers said, “If I do not believe as you believe, it proves that you do not believe as I believe, and that is all that it proves.”

For our communities to thrive, we need to recognize and honor that the values of others in the community may be different than our own. Just because another person has a different set of values or beliefs doesn’t mean they are wrong, only different from our own.

Plus, we all need to always remember that we might be wrong.
