When we first came in Canada we were told to say please every time when we need something and thank you after we receive something. We ask why, we are not kids. Then we realized that in Canada peoples are coming from all over the world and they have different cultures. So we had to learn how to live together and to respect everybody. Those two words are very simple but are meaning a lot if you use them and believe in them. We learn about each culture, to tolerate each other and to respect their customs. I always said bring all the Palestinians and the Jews in Canada and they will start to live and respect each other. Why is that? They will forget about land and hate. But I will write more about this in another post.
