Is this the melting pot?

People are born not only to countries or villages, but also to languages and          customs. They are born into ways of seeing the world, into understandings.

Sometimes in a country like ours where are so many people from such different backgrounds they are born into the     culture and language of their ancestry. They are born into Chinese or Spanish or Urdu, French, Swedish or Italian, Korean, Yiddish or Russian.

They are born into their beliefs and the belief systems of their parents and grandparents.

But they are also born into the ways of their neighbors and friends. Cultures meld and clash and emerge as hybrids, clones of diversity.
