Andrew Solomon

 

Andrew Soloman a writer, blogger and truly controversial person, in this moving TED Talk shares an experience of  from his second grade. It’s an amazing story and easy to understand why thirty-five years later he can vividly recall every detail. No matter what your beliefs about the details of his life, I think you’ll agree, that Andrew’s growth in compassion did not come easily.

I present this TED talk not in support of any of Dr. Solomon’s positions, but only in the spirit of Pope Francis who on his visit to the Holy Lands a few weeks ago prayed: “May we respect and love one another as brothers and sisters!” he said. “May we learn to understand the suffering of others! May no one abuse the name of God through violence!” (http://news.yahoo.com/pope-honors-holocaust-terror-victims-israel-080832210.html)
