The following is a video from the first Comic Con I attended. I went to see Wil Wheaton expecting him to be like so many of the others. Interesting to listen to and get to know him a bit personally. Little did I know that the last question, from a little girl, would change so many things. I went from being a fan of his to being a super fan of his. I now highly admire this man and look up to him. When a grown man can make a room full of people, men and women, cry, it changes you. Watch this and see if it doesn’t affect you, too.

Now, the reason I am talking about this is how my daughter has taken to using this. She has become a teacher since that event and has always been a person that looks out for others and hates injustice. She has never tolerated bullying of any sort and is using this in her classroom after seeing some kids being picked on for loving Dr. Who. She showed this video to her classes and gave each kid a sticky note. She asked them to all write something that they love on the post it and she has a space in her classroom for these all to go. She told me some of the things that the kids wrote and is was amazing. She said that some were as simple as “football” but some were more deep as “helping people”. I look forward to hearing what the kids put up there over the year and how this progresses. Obviously, I do not need to say how proud of her that I am. She is an amazing young lade and I expect an awesome teacher,
