Constant awareness is difficult but necessary

I grew up in a very white Catholic community. I always understood that there was more to the world then what was in my community growing up, but there’s no way I could have anticipated just how different everyone’s backgrounds could be. It’s hard to always be aware and sensitive of the differences of others but it is something that I try to remind myself of throughout every day.
