Cultural Immersion is easier with other cultures when you learn how to treat the least, the most, or all people the same.
"And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me."
Immersion into foreign cultures is easy, when you treat all people as equals. However, and for an equal, you to not treat them as a beggar or poor.
glad to see you are ok. I really like how you clarified that because people live in poverty, it does not make them dishonest, and all people should be treated with respect. If you attended church there , you would find that you had more in common with these people than you think. Even the most corrupt places, have pockets of decency.
I believe most crime is done for greed, or the desire to be clever, seldom for true need. However, I truly have not many people truly hungry as the world would like to portray. They will say the people are starving in Guatemala, and there are fields of vegtables everywhere, they would steal a cabbage. I do not worry about poor people in the least, I worry about drunk and wanna be clever young men.
