We are all different from each other. Mankind has created many labels like race, gender, nationality, religion, culture, sexuality, which categorise our differences and similarities. We see our visible differences often and create our own small boxes based on our own respective understanding. What we often do not see is our strongest and longest shared trait: emotions. Pain is pain, joy is joy, and love is love regardless of our labels. Enayatt Safi Is a food entrepreneur born in Afghanistan, now living in Copenhagen. He is the founder of the Dhaba Restaurants, and a passionate political science student. He believes that food is the greatest tool in building bridges. Safi invites elder home for free lunch once in a month to his restaurants, this is his way to say thank you to the elders for giving him a Muslim boy from Afghanistan, the opportunity to take education and build a business and most important offering him Love regardless of his background as refugee.
Safi believes that everybody has a hero inside, we do not have to start with big things to change society. Give a smile to stranger, hold the door for another person, give your seat in the bus to an elder, and once you have done this it inspires you to make even more difference tomorrow and start a circle of love. Safi’s talk will leave with a good feeling. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
