Awarness Of Others Essay

768 words - 4 pages

It is always interesting to take a glance into another individual’s life, especially when an individual differs greatly from yourself in one way or another.

After interviewing Torresin, it was shocking to hear how kind and loving they are to one another in Canada, not only the Christians and other religious groups. It was very stereotypical in many ways, that what he told me in that he told how Canada was filled with overly kind, helpful people.
