As I watched this video, it reminded me of an undergraduate class I took. It was the only class non-special needs undergraduate students could take.

I recall how our text and professor focused on the idea that we have far more in common than what makes us difference. At the core, we are each humans and, when we see each other in that light, it makes all the difference.

When we take time and are mindful to each person present to us, we can grow and understand their presence is a gift to each of us. The differences make us each a unique star in the universe, but there is more to each of us that makes us the same.

  1. Okay, how much FUN was that!!!!! Yay! The good thing is that those people weren’t trying to force each other, by law, die and be poor. None of them had power over the others. That makes a huge difference in the exercise. So much fun. Should be used in schools everywhere, at work too.
