Let's Talk Culture + Respect

Laisve means freedom in Lithuanian --> Perhaps the US should reconsider this word as well
 

Checking in

 

Hello! This was meant to be my January 2017 catch-up post, but "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it any more." I had a more positive note previously written here but honestly, I'm incredibly disgusted by the news coming out of the US at the moment, so I deleted what I wrote. I'd like to note that while I vote, I really don't like to talk about politics (even writing this post makes me sweaty), but I do not tolerate disrespect and racism. I'd like to take a moment to direct you to my new About Page and mission to encourage everyone to seek understanding and respect of ALL cultures, religions, and beliefs.

On In Search Of, I will increase the number of cultural posts that I write because I want to highlight that differences are what provides color and wonder to the world. Hopefully, whether you are currently at home or traveling, you too will look deeper into the cultures around you and find it in your heart to show them all respect.
