We Need Everyone's Gifts

The blog this week was written by Dr. Allison Hammond, Executive Director of The Arcadia Institute. “Ourchestra: So you haven't got a drum, just beat your belly. So I haven't got a horn-I'll play my nose. So we haven't any cymbals- We'll just slap our hands together, And though there may be orchestras That sound a little better With their fancy shiny instruments That cost an awful lot- Hey, we're making music twice as good By playing what we've got!” - Shel Silverstein

This is one of my favorite poems by Shel Silverstein that presents in a whimsical manner why we need one another. I thought I would share it for the blog this week.

Also, as I was looking for articles about the importance of diversity in our communities, I stumbled across this wonderful website, Radiant Abilities and it's blog. I wanted to share it with you.
