As Americans, we should be one of the most culturally savvy nations in the world; it blows my mind to consider how many cultures gather within our nation's borders. Yet honestly, how many of us stretch ourselves to make friends beyond our own ethnicity? Not just a co-worker, but a real friend. How many can say that they have friends from all backgrounds -- White, African-American, Latino, Chinese, Indian, Russian.... Oh my word, what richness is found in an intercultural friendship! It's a mutual blessing, and it's beyond accessible within the USA. Take advantage of that, fellow Americans!! No regrets, guaranteed. Go beyond the comfort zone.
