It does not matter who we are, what we do,

how rich and poor we are financially or intellectually....
The more knowledgeable we become the more pious we should become....
What it matters the most is how kind we are and how much kindness we leave behind

and beyond in this world and the life after.
"We are born to connect..." (Rumi) acting as an Architect for Bridging Cultures....
As we explore there are more cultural similarities we ought to understand,

respect, embrace the cultural differences.
Positive Energy Quote: Let us observe, enjoy, and celebrate all colors in the Mother Nature from one season to another so as on Global Earth among all well being from one region to another.
