    My school is holding a diversity parade at the end of the month, and all the classrooms are decorating their doors for the event. I spent a couple hours today compiling a list of quotes on the subject. I could only fit 4 quotes on the poster, but found many more.

    I thought I'd share them in case anyone else is doing something similar...

    Love is the only force capable of turning an enemy into a friend - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

    Peace can not be kept by force, it can only be achieved by understanding - Albert Einstein

    The highest result of education is tolerance - Helen Keller

    Although we are in different boats, you in your boat and we in our canoe, we share the same river of life - Oren Lyons, Onandaga Nation Chief

    We all live with the objective of being happy; our lives are all different and yet the same - Anne Frank

    We have become not a melting pot but a beautiful mosaic. Different people, different beliefs, different yearnings, different hopes, different dreams - Jimmy Carter
