One of the greatest problems we have in Australia is our attitude toward others who are different to ourselves or what we consider as 'The Norm'. We have an eclectic society which has brought about an emporium of cultural pleasures yet many still fail to recognise the 'GOOD' that has come from people of other cultures.
I accept that there are some things in our society that are not acceptable, one of them being the mutilation caused by female circumcision, that being the case because often when such rituals are performed in Australia they are performed illegally due to Doctors not being allowed to, and butchering can and does occur.
The Keyword in the case of all cultures in Australia is "ACCEPTANCE". Lose that and we go nowhere.
God Grant me the Serenity To accept the things I cannot change Courage to change the things I can And Wisdom to know the difference.
