In every country, every person is different! No two Americans are the same. No two Ethiopians are the same, either. When we talk about "the American people" or "the Ethiopian people" or "the Canadian people" we are doing something called "making generalizations."
But have to remember that no one person represents ALL of the American people. No one person, living in China is the same as any other person in China!
When we read books about people from a different country, we need to understand that a country is made up of millions of people and they all have different thoughts and feelings and loves and likes.
Miss Rebekah and Miss Ing think that there are some things that ARE true about every person:
- Every person is beautifully made!
- Every person is important!
- Every person has a story!
- Every person deserves respect and kindness!
Are there others things that you and your family can say about other people?
Maybe you believe that all other people are interesting? And that is why you are here on this page, reading this and watching Miss Rebekah!
On this page and in the videos, you might read or hear us say, "The people of Ireland are..." but please remember that everyone is unique.
We want to celebrate the things that make us different and celebrate the things that we have in common.
The world will be a much happier place if we do!
Thank you for sharing your precious time with us!
Miss Rebekah and Miss Ing
