  1. It excites my heart to see such compassion for one another as St. Louis hosts different countries to bring awareness to the violence on women and girls. Through dancing, we can see a connection between these countries and an elevation of consciousness for persons of different cultures and religions. If there were more organizations that were proactive towards brining humans together, instead of separating by classes, cultures, and religions, we would see a huge change in human's compassion for one another.
