Welcome Them

I once received a note from a student–an older, non-traditional student like I once was (and still am). He couldn’t face doing an assignment because it required him to try to interact with other younger students who generally ignored him or just gave him curious stares. I allowed him to complete the assignment alone because I well understand that community can’t be forced.

As you go through your day, talking and laughing with friends, take a moment to notice those around you who aren’t like you and who aren’t in the center of things. Smile warmly at them and welcome them into your circle. It will enrich their life and yours.
