Jojo Meets A New Chipmunk Friend

Teddy Bear Wisdom — Travel is fatal to prejudice

JoJo knows from experience that travel is fatal to prejudice because travel gives life to new friendships that are never based on skin color, birthplace, language, religion, or sexual orientation — in other words, senseless fears of differences.

“Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all of one’s lifetime,” wrote Mark Twain..

Jojo And His Chipmunk Friend

As JoJo learned with this chipmunk, friendships are forged by seeing possibility and by welcoming new ideas and putting aside senseless fears.  One of JoJo’s favorite quotes is from Shirley MacLaine, “The more I traveled the more I realized that fear makes strangers of people who should be friends.”
