Diversity is what makes the world go round.

15 Jan

Look at the picture below, it’s a picture of the tallest man in the world standing beside the shortest man in the world… Diversity is what makes the world go round, diversity is what makes life so interesting.

Mini Me versus Maxi Me

It’s so tempting to want everybody to be like just like us… to see the world only through our own eyes. When you are less than 3 feet small, life must look and feel very different; imagine what is looks like to be eight feet tall?

When you create characters in a book, or a screenplay you are forced to ask… what does the world look like for this person… what is their point of view?

It’s more interesting to imagine, to research, to discover a point of view different than your own. Diversity is what makes the world go round.

    This is horrible and diametrically opposed to your point, but you are being so politically correct today I can’t resist: It looks like something just fell out of his pocket.
    There. I said it. More diversity in the world now I guess.
