You are not so 'special' after all

Having grown up in a world in which Mr. Rodgers told me how special I was five days a week and anxiety ridden parents demand and command that their children be played more in Little League and soccer practice—a world where everyone gets a trophy for just showing up to play, the following speech is the refreshing drink of water some of us have been waiting for for the past 20 years.

Watch as a veteran high school English teacher tells his students so proudly graduating high school that they are not as special as they are so often told. In fact he says, one in a million means that there are around 7,000 people just like them. Instead, he suggests to find a way to make an impact regardless of what numbers of people might be feeling every bit as special as you on any given day.

Roll on!
