My children will grow up in a home that is decorated by myself, my Muslim best friend and my Jewish sorority Little, during the holiday seasons.
My children will grow up knowing different cultures. Different religions. Heterosexuals and homosexuals. People from all walks of life.
My children will learn Arabic words from Aunt Dounia, and some Hebrew from Aunt Morgan, while learning English from me. They will also learn a bit of any other language that is prevalent in our lives.
My children will not be ignorant; they will be accepting of all cultures, religions, ethnicities, and understand the need for equal rights.
My children will grow up celebrating many different holidays/life events, understanding the meaning behind each one, and why they are important to our loved ones.
This is my goal. This is the kind of mother I want to be - the kind of mother that can raise children like the ones I described above. Life is too short to oppress, discriminate, or even dislike others for pointless reasons. And I pray I can raise children who whole-heartedly believe that.
