One can travel to Italy, to the Amazon, through the tales of your grandmother, or through the recounted memories of those in the concentration camps of World War II; but, perhaps, it was Mark Twain that said it best, “travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.”

Try taking a walk in someone else’s shoes, you’d be surprised at what life looks like from a different angle. And, while you live their life, and fight their everyday battles, you will learn what a different place the world is when you see through the eyes of another.

Seed: Travel a little bit each day, and your view of the world will become the macro eye of the collective consciousness.
