Only 3 percent of families in San Diego look like ours. When Jeremiah goes to school, most of his classmates will not understand when I speak to him in Shanghainese. His grandparents will tell him about family traditions that make no sense to our neighbors. When @tiffatsea and I came out with our book, All Year for One Day, we wanted to start conversations about race so that our kids can hopefully live in a better world. Differences do not have to divide us but instead we can learn to appreciate the diversity around us. Each ethnicity and each culture brings something unique and special. When we start from a place of curiosity, we can start to understand the traditions and practices that make us who we are.
