All the smiling faces of people are the same. The eyes are elongated to the side, the sparkling light stays in the pupils, the mouth is wide open from side to side, and the muscles around the mouth are pulled upwards. Regardless of race, gender, age, religion, skin color, or hair color, people’s smiles are all the same. And the appearance of smiling people always makes those who see it happy. By acknowledging and embracing differences, people are respected, comfortable, and able to laugh out loud. And it is a way for me to be respected, happy, and smile also.
