What is the meaning of life ?

I think the meaning of life is to understand each other. We should not be judged by skin color. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said he had a dream that black and white children could go to school together. Our teachers respect our racial differences. We have students who are different and we respect them. We have special classes so all students are able to learn. We have teachers who can teach Spanish-speaking kids the same lessons we learn in English. We respect each other’s ethnic background
and study about each other’s differences and understanding each other is the meaning of life.
