Celebrating Cultural Diversity

Cultural diversity is good! Let’s all celebrate!
I have my culture, they have theirs!
There are peoples who were here before your arrival.
Their culture is so good that you keep them in the reserves.
There are peoples who are coming after you.
Their cultures are all good so you grant them the festivals.
You feel pity and ask if you have culture to celebrate!
You don’t have a reserve to stay!
You don’t have a festival to celebrate!
Wake up!
Your culture is everywhere!
It's on TVs!
It's in our textbooks and daily news!
It's in the shopping malls and restaurants
It's in the courthouses and museums ….
Don’t cry! Don’t cry! Being invisible is not easy.
