What Inspires You - Nov. 30, 2015

I don't watch much television or go to the movies often, nor do I listen to a lot of radio or podcasts. So most of my inspiration comes from books. This one is Wonder by R.J. Palacio. I know this is a pretty popular book right now, but for a good reason. It's about a student who is going to public school for the first time, as a middle schooler. Middle school is challenging socially for lots of people, and to make it worse, Auggie is different. It's an excellent book to remind people--especially kids--that people who are different than you likely have stuff in common with you too, and that commonality can be a great basis for friendship.
