“Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.”
~ Maya Angelou
Through travel with an open mind and receiving heart, we are exposed to things old and new, strange and familiar, terrifying and comforting, daunting and inspiring, beautiful and ugly, thrilling and dull, and everything in between. Over the years, I have come to realize that with travel, we come to know concepts and phenomena we could never grasp within the pages of a book or by watching National Geographic. With knowledge, comes understanding, with understanding, comes acceptance. Most importantly, with acceptance, comes peace. Even with all the sadness and turmoil in the world, I believe peace is possible. And I believe it is my responsibility to become knowledgeable so that I can understand, accept, and live in and share peace in whatever space I reside. It is within the transformational experiences of Soulful Traveling that fellow travelers have the opportunities to learn, understand, accept, and to live in peace.
