The Simpsons and Diversity: We Must Celebrate Our Differences!

How many people understand the concept
of diversity and implement it?
Diversity does not mean that you give
up your space and human rights to minority
groups, diversity means that if one sees
differences in others (they could be the same
race or different), you respect their
individuality, instead of attacking,
belittling, or disapproving them.

Science Museum of Oklahoma: The Mind Blowing Red-Crowned Crane

When Sheng and Tom were young,
Justin and I took them to
science museums on weekly basis,
Kids become happier when they're outdoors,
or engaged in stimulating activities.
Science Museum of Oklahoma,
home to Kirkpatrick Planetarium,
is a fantastic treat, hands-on activities,
Robert show, Chemical reaction show,
they are eye opening to Sheng and Tom.
