What are some ways to welcome different people in my life? (from a 6th grade student)

It starts by seeing different people.  I know this sounds overly simple, but it is an essential step.  Take just a few moments at some point in your day to notice the people around you.  Especially for a student at school, you may notice a certain group of people or your crush or the teachers first.  At work, you may be aware of where the boss is or a co-worker who often makes request of you.  Pay attention to this and then see if you can notice someone different.  Maybe you’ll notice a student or coworker or person at the grocery store who might need some help.  Noticing is the first part of welcoming!
