What is diversity? Well, it can include gender, religion, race and so many other variables. Diversity is all over, yet some people tend to acknowledge these differences by taking matters into their hands differently than a considerate person would.

For example, Muslim girls who wear hijabs, Sikh boys who wear patka (turbans) and Jewish boys who wear yarmulkes report being targeted because of these visible symbols of their religions. Oppressive attacks in these situations can lead to depression, suicide and many more things along those lines.

So, if you wouldn`t want this happening to someone you love or care for, you need to inform yourself or others about the things that matter the most to the people around us.
