The word I chose for the #oneword rock project is unity. I chose this word because I feel it is a universal word for togetherness. There is so much separation, hate, and discrimination and we as humans need to stop focusing on our differences and focus more on the soul inside the person. Race, religion, culture, etc. should never be used to single out a person. So, with this rock, I hope I remind people to look past all of these things and take time to understand someone before you judge them.
When immersing yourself into a whole new culture brings a new lifestyle, new language, new friends, new changes, and much much more. I thought I would share some attractions from all over the world that intrigue me/ places I’d love to visit. Starting with one of the many Tokyo capsule hotels. I would love to experience the feeling of staying in one, from what I’ve seen in pictures it seems very cozy and that is why I’ve always wanted to go visit one. Another sight in Japan I’d love to see is Mount Fuji. The sunrise from the top of the mountain is such an ethereal sight, I can only dream of experiencing it in real life one day.

There are trails on the mountains and along your way, you’ll experience lush plant life, waterfalls, and animals along your hike. Another place in South Korea is Myeong-Dong which is a long street of clothing stores and food places.
Now going all the way to Thailand, another place I would want to go is the Patong islands. They are very tropical and relaxation oozes through the pictures. In addition, I would love to see the Grand Palace, built in 1782, it would be amazing to see the history the palace brings. And the last two places are located in Germany and Ireland. Honestly, I would be ecstatic to visit anywhere within those countries because my ancestors are from there so it would be great to see the places I’ve come from. So, I don’t have any certain locations I would like to visit there. Now, I’d like to ask you, what places would you like to visit?
All my life, for as long as I can remember, I’ve always hated labels. Why are they necessary? Why do we use words to separate ourselves from one another, we are all humans after all. The use of labels to put down other’s culture is intolerable, why does it matter if a person is a different race? The number of racially intolerant people has me truly amused. I cannot comprehend why others put people down because of something they can’t change. The most pitiful excuse a typical racist “American” has to say is, “This is our America, we were here first.” However, this couldn’t be any farther from the truth. The Native Americans were here before us but nobody wants to talk about that. Their people are still living in poverty and have some of the highest suicide rates, and because of who? Us. I feel that this whole issue blew up just a few years ago. There is just so much hate in the world. We need to learn the definition of unity once again, we need to all come together, we all should be at peace with one another despite our differing opinions. Because after all, we only have each other. We are all human, don’t forget that.
