We are Not Special

Far away high five to you, Mister.
Maybe you've seen this YouTube video already. Maybe not. But it spoke to me, so I'm sharing it. Because this high school English teacher just told a large crowd of privileged young people and their parents (BURN!) that they are not f*cking special. And then he threw down a few more truth bombs and it was amazing and inspiring and I really, really loved it.

The truth is that I am raising privileged, first world kids. And I struggle every day that to make sure that they grow up recognizing that the world is full of people who are exactly like them, no matter what those people look like, what they have or don't have, where they live, or what God they worship. They are us.

And also that they should not be dickheads. Because there seem to be a lot of them already.

So enjoy!
