That morning, I was left with the same choice that you probably have been left with at some point in your life.

I could be a victim, or I could rise up and somehow find a place of compassion for those kids. I share my story and these lessons with you because I know that I am not the only one who has felt like an outsider.

I know I am not the only one who has felt tolerated or ignored, overlooked, or harassed. … haven’t you?

We throw the word ‘inclusion’ around quite a lot, and I wonder if we spend enough time reflecting on what it
means to be EX-cluded.

We’ve all been there. It hurts. And, I’m willing to bet we don’t want that for ourselves OR to be the person who inflicts that on others.
