Los Angeles is the Hub of Diversity

Apr 23, 2010 by Lisa Newton

Los Angeles is about people–and as President Lincoln said:

“That this nation shall have a new birth of freedom; and that this government of the people, by the people, for the people.”

Our city is not about buildings, movies, parks, architecture, and culture solely, because we’re responsible for why these things exist and are celebrated.

Through our diversity, ethnography, sociological, economical, educational, gender, occupational, age, and every other difference imaginable, our commonality is that we’re a city rich in people–short people, tall people, brown people, black people, and purple people (Hey, I just thought I’d throw that in there to see if you were paying attention).

Our city is a huge melting pot that works despite all of our differences, because our common bonds as Americans and denizens of Los Angeles is home for our common dreams, hopes, and aspirations remain as vibrant and strong, as when Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address.

What can I say, I love LA!
