Tolerance

Intro Sample...


Ice breakers almost always include the question of, “Where are you from?” and having grown up in Naperville, Illinois, whenever I bring that up to people, I often get the response, “Oh wow, wasn’t that named one of the country’s most mean towns to live in?”. That question is usually followed by the immediate judgement that I am a mean, rich, shallow person with little regard for other people.

Much like my dad, when I heard someone say they didn’t think a kid should be raised by homosexual parents, I flipped out. I remember raising my hand, and then just giving this kid a piece of my mind before he could even finish. Mr. Brouwer let it all play out for the first time, and after I got done berating the poor kid for his opinion, he asked, “Does anyone know what intolerance is?”. Being freshman, none of us really knew what that word meant. Wed all probably heard it on the news, read it in a book, or even probably have heard a parent use it, but I doubt any of us really knew what it meant. He went on to explain to us what it is, and how many times when a kid is intolerant, it isn’t their fault, but the fault of the environment they grew up in. He said, “If you are going to succeed ...
