Liked we discussed in the group, I think it’s really difficult to nail what I learned or thought of this class in just 1 thing.
One of the things I learned was how important it is to be open minded and to not be so closed off. It’s so important to LISTEN. Sometimes that’s all we can do. When it comes to the “other” that’s all we can do but at least it’s something. I think it’s important to be informed and not live in ignorance of everything that is outside of the “western” culture.
I really enjoyed having time in my life to be intentional about thinking about issues and politics from a variety of perspectives. It’s so important be knowledgeable and informed on everything. Especially the hard things that challenge and push us.
