I just visited Egypt, Jordan, Oman and Dubai in the United Arab Emirates as part of a writing assignment. You probably won’t be surprised when I say it was an amazing voyage for me. Many of the things I learned have a significant bearing on the work of the Humanity Project, one way or another. This organization is about using cooperation and social connection to improve individuals and our society. I came away from my last stop, in Cairo, with the strong feeling that the world needs each of us to find ways to bridge the cultural misunderstandings that artificially separate our Western nations from the Middle Eastern countries. We simply don’t understand each other because we don’t really know each other. I think it’s as simple as that.
