Inspiring Poem for Kids

Living Without Prejudice

Always remember every nationality, every race, color, and person out there can contribute to the person you become. Knowing different cultures can only broaden one's horizon.

Would be dull and so very alone.
I want my garden of life to be filled
With every color known.
