EXACTLY, don't forget it..... PARENTS PLEASE TEACH YOUR CHILDREN there are a lot of people and children that are disabled, may have a different appearance or not be able to speak well, etc.   PLEASE TEACH YOUR CHILDREN THAT THIS COULD HAVE HAPPENED TO ANYONE and is very common and TEACH KINDNESS.   Many of these folks are "normal" trapped in an abnormal body.  Not their fault at all.

I first heard about TED Talks about 10 years ago when I was spending a lazy Saturday at my computer playing the YouTube game.

Flash forward to today and the art of the TED Talk is still growing strong. Founded in 1984 as a conference, TED Talk stands for Technology, Education, and Design. Funny…
