Dear Editor Prieto,
I totally concur with your kind suggestion to immigrants to join in the local economy and to seriously attempt to learn the ways of the local community. As you say, immigrants coming into a new land and culture may find habits and culture strange; however this is likely true for anyone moving to any country. You are right to encourage people to work hard at learning the language and systems, which includes law developed after centuries of adjusting the US Constitution. This work is not completed and likely will continue for many centuries.
The suggestion to grow gardens and share ideas with local residents is a good one. If we want peace, we must become the peaceful person we expect of others. Smile at everyone as this serves as a big “message” sign for others to know we accept one another and are willing to relate positively. The better people get to know one another, the more we learn to love them. This is a basic foundational ingredient for enduring peace.
You are right to ask parents to support their children as they acculturate and blend at school. Support them when others may not treat them well and ask officials to intervene when help is needed.
There is no finer model of human relationships than Jesus of Nazareth who taught high principles of enduring spiritual value. Turn away from those values and we surely ask for trouble. Study his model and we learn to live better with one another. This high modeling I find very nicely narrated in Part IV of The Urantia Book (El Libro de Urantia) found at www.urantia.org. I recommend this for everyone.
Editor Prieto is right to ask people to make the best of life by working hard to live better with one another. Springtime, what a great time of year to plant new seeds for enduring friendships.
