I’m taking today’s prompt at face value and using it as an opportunity to remember some of my favorite stories of inclusion. In doing so I am reminded of why I am blessed to do this work. Children have the most amazing capacity to inspire us – if only we slow down enough to let them.
Life Lessons in the Lunch Line – It really is in the unexpected moments that we can find the most inspiration.
Max and Wayne: Reflections of Shabbat Together - I am so proud of these young men. They looked out for each other in ways I never would have expected. Each of them has a beautiful neshama (Jewish soul). I just happen to have the good fortune to help nurture them.
We are Playing Wheelchair - Children innately know how to overlook the things that make adults uncomfortable.
What are the successful stories of inclusion that you remember?
