I was taught to treat everyone the same regardless of skin color, or race, or wealth, or anything else. I was taught this by my mother. She didnít explain this with words, but rather with actions. She treated everyone the same, she didnít know a stranger, she talked to everyone. In the Supermarket, this was annoying (can we just go) because everyone knew her too. But, I guess I must have learned something from this. My mother has been gone almost 13 years, but I think about her every day; especially today, the anniversary of the day my parents married.
