“Write something worth reading or do something worth writing.” ~Ben Franklin
I’m off doing things worth writing about.
See you in 2017!
On my commute home tonight, “How was school today?” was taken to another level. Through a series of question and answers, a son explained to his father that he joined the “Identity Exploration” group during his affinity group class. He said, “That’s where kids who aren’t sure about how they self-identify yet and can learn more about it. I mean, on one hand, it’s easy because I’m Jewish. I know I’m not going to join the Christian group, but what about sexuality and other identities? I’d like to know more about those so I’m going to explore.”
Yup. Tears of joy all the way home. We’re getting there, folks.
“…success for all requires openness towards cognitive diversity
and isn’t so easily standardized.”
