Travel to a place that has been considered an “enemy” of your country. When I was in Moscow and taking the train along the Trans-Siberian route, I looked around at all the kind, wonderful Russian people I was meeting, and thought, “In my childhood, you were the people I was told to fear. You are them?” It puts politics and fear into perspective.
