If we’ve learned anything thus far in life, it is to never stop learning. Never stop learning how to do, to be, to feel, to think, to act, and to teach.
While it is vastly important for us as adults and parents to teach and guide our children to be kind, inclusive, respectful, and empathetic citizens, it is also incredibly important for us to take a look in the mirror and within to ensure we are inclusive, kind, respectful, and empathetic citizens.
