    Diversity is what makes a nation great, as we celebrate the talents, thoughts and ideas of so many cultures that come together for the purpose of one love, one goal for all be the best we can be and develop each of our talents. If all are cloned to be the same, think the same, then where is the new ideas to come from to make great things happen. Love with diversity has proven to be what makes the world great, not hate for others who are different, think different. Celebration of our differences matter. Not hate !
