Learn From Other Cultures
When you travel somewhere do you want to dive into their culture? Do you want to learn their history?
Learn the people and you will understand the place. Know the joys and pains of humanity and you will find a unified connection.
Rome is often a place of great, ruthless, and fearless warriors, leaders, and thinkers. It was a place of grandeur. But not a lot of people know is Rome was also a place for the exiled and unwanted. It was also a place where compassion was looked down on as a weakness (this resonates with the culture of the Colosseum games).
Today, many individuals do not understand this tough side of Italy. Throughout all the tourism, the romanticized images of media and movies, people often neglect to view Italy more than a tourist spot. They forget the years of history that have walked among their cobblestone roads and the way they carried it with much pride. They are a people of tough beauty.
As leaders, are you willing to take compassion on the exiled and unwanted?
Are you willing to understand history with all its joys and pains create a tough beauty within you? Are you willing to carry it with such grace?
