The farm where I am staying organises meetings for other farmers and public every Wednesday in the capital city, where people share knowledge and learn from each other. I was curious about it so have decided to join them. One of their friends have a bakery so we tried different cookies, croissants and breads. We had an interesting discussion about our lifes, each of us have a very different lifestyle and at some point one of them told me he had a very bad experience while visiting Prague, the capital city of a country where I was born. Then another person added their bad experience as well. I listened to their stories but did not really say anything. Well what is there to say? After sometime one of them said, can you at least say you are sorry? It is your country! Yes, I am sorry you had a bad experience but not because it was in Czech, I am sorry because it shouldn't happened anywhere. Just because I was born in this land doesn't mean I am responsible for other people's behaviour. I am not. I am only responsible for what I do. This is how prejudices and hatred spreads. We are judging others by their nationality, religion, colour of skin and other attributes which have nothing to do with who we truly are. Let's concentrate on the things that are connecting us instead of the few that separate us.
