If we grab into a bag of apples and pick one of them, what can we say about it? Is it just an apple like every other in the bag and how can we say that if we don’t know about the other apples?
Sure, they are all different.
And so are we. We know that fact but we all have stereotypes in mind when we talk about other nations if we want or not. But we can break through the prejudice if we are open to explore the stories of the people we talk to.
The participants of the encounter explored the story of their particular apple. How did the apple grow up? How many different places and people he went through? Where did he get the scratches and bruises?
The story makes the difference. And if you look deep enough, you will find your unique apple out of all others.
