Seek First to Understand

The conversation started with the reading  of this article in the latest edition of
Scholastic News. 


They couldn't understand why 
African Americans were not
allowed to eat in restaurants with
white customers.  After all this happened routinely, long before they were even born.   

One boy summed it this way:  
"If we took the skin "off"of you or
I, of anyone at all..... we'd still be human
beings.  So there really is no difference."
Best lesson of the day.....maybe of a lifetime.
Seek first to understand, 
then to be understood.
