You have got to be one of the smartest kids in the world. About 800 children have figured out what the nurse wanted everyone to learn, and I'll bet you make 801! 

Did you think that she wanted the kids to learn what it feels like to be left out?
If you did, you're right!

Did you think that she wanted them to experience how awful it feels to be treated unfairly?
If you did, you're right!

Did you learn, like the children in the class did, that the world would be a better place if everyone cared about everyone else?
If you did, you're incredible!

Did you learn that differences on the outside cover up special treasures on the inside, and that to hunt for the treasure, you have to understand about the difference?
If you did, you are one very special person, and the world is a better place because you're in it!
