■ Message
None of us chose the place we were born. Through the eyes of others, the world looks differently. Before you form your opinion, before you make your judgment, before you come to your conclusion, try it. Doing so does not necessarily mean we agree with them. What it does is gives us possibilities to open ourselves up to find an answer to the “why” we have and take our step that bridges the gap.
