Getting pass Ethnocentrism

This flower is the Scottish emblem.
I see these flowers grow everywhere in Manchester, England.
Obviously Scotland and England did not have a good historical relationship.
The sense of rivalry is subtly embedded
among the two regions, but
you see travelers going between everyday;
some even migrate.

It does remind me the importance to get pass ethnocentrism.
If we stay within a place and only access knowledge and people within such certain region,
we are limited in insight of what’s out there.
Ethnocentrism is an ignorance as we do not know how others can lead their lives in a different but equally good (if not better) way.

To certain extent,
different social and political reasons in this world have led races and cultures to merge and integrate.
The UK is one of the most diverse countries in the world.
People are bound to meet diversity and difference even within a local region.
The true question is how we respond to this fact.

If only we could take sometime to attend to differences around us.
Appreciate and respect we all can be different, even we sometimes do not fully agree.
Communication is the key.
