Understand that attitudes about places and people can change over time, but not without engagement.
Understand that different generations will naturally think about places and people differently based upon what they have been taught by the education system, news, history, and popular culture.
Understand that engagement leads to more than understanding of the other; it can also lead to self-healing, self-understanding, and a reconfiguration of one’s role in history.
