Michelle Obama's words are worth repeating

"It is hard to hate up close."
We're all made more caring and empathetic the more we break down the artificial barriers of race, religion, politics and especially geography. I've long believed that war would be much harder to wage if more people were to travel and get to know their neighboring nations and cultures.
