The second part of our video calls all viewers to action. This finale reminds us that we are not alone in our communities, and that our land is made of many different faces and stories. The challenge after watching is not to focus just on the story that sounds like ours, but to remember that it is the other, the one different from us, that matters. Diversity is not just and idea, but a person too. Please remember to vote for Part 2 AND Part 1!

This is a really good video. It really shows the struggles each group has faced. I hope it will shed light on the issues in our world today and help show people we are all human, nothing more, nothing less. I wish i would’ve made it in time to vote. It would’ve been 5 stars!!!!!!!!

I totally agree. I know the kinds of struggles people face daily and I know that not everyone is as strong as these young people. Hopefully it will teach others that they shouldnt have to be-they should just be accepted. Too bad more people didnt get the chance to see it and vote. I saw it for the first time on this site today. It should be the winner-easily.

This video shows that even though people come from different backgrounds and have different stories, in the end we all face the same problems. “A house divided cannot stand” we must be strong and stand together in order to truely be one community where everyone can be safe. This video truely shows the similarity of everyone and the idea that we all come from this land and are a part of it.
