The rich heritage that comes from our multiculturalism is one of the strengths we have as Australians. From the oldest, continuous culture in the world to that of the newest arrivals, the diversity of cultural experiences has enriched our country. The melding of diverse cultures has brought with it a greater depth and breadth of experiences in all areas of life. As we celebrate Harmony Week this week, we honour our common humanity and the richness that is brought into our lives through diversity.
In an increasingly connected globalized world, loving our neighbours stretches from the kindness and service we give to people within our community to those beyond our borders.
