Day No: 321
International Day for Tolerance

Every year on November 16th, the International Day for Tolerance generates awareness of the dangers of intolerance. Since the inception of this day, it’s been the UN’s goal to strengthen tolerance by fostering mutual understanding among cultures and peoples.

UNESCO views tolerance as respect, acceptance, and appreciation of the rich diversity of our world’s cultures. It includes our forms of expression and ways of being human. Intolerance is just the opposite. Injustice, marginalization, and discrimination are all forms of intolerance. Much must be done to counter intolerance.

For the photo today we need a Macro, which is could be challenging to show tolerance.  My photo is of some of the deconstructed Berlin Wall that went up the year I was born and knocked down the year my eldest son was born, and so it has meaning in our household.  Let history teach us about how to go forward.

Photograph something small that shows our world's cultures, other than your own!
