Diversity is a blessing

Diversity in Indonesia
One day a friend asked me why we are different. Why God made us live in diversity even though it can highly lead us into big, big problems such as conflicts, war and so on.

Well, I guess difference is a fate that we have to either stand against or embrace. We people are different from each other because simply we grow up in different places.

As time goes on, we learn different things that make us choose which one we should lean on. We have different people, friends and family who we perceive as role model. This is why people have always lived in diversity.

Human being’s diversity is like a two-edged sword. You don’t want to live with it unless you’re careful and resourceful. It has big potential to come up with conflicts and frustration. Without respects and understanding, it can be a huge problem hindering the progress of any kinds of positive development. In this point of view, people are different because they are meant to be full of conflict and dangerous.
