How World of Warcraft Saved Me and My Education-TEDxRedmond
on depression – 11% of youth – one of greatest common denominators is school
mine stemmed from shame
being able to find friendship in a place like that was just enough to pull myself back together…
almost all of these healings happened outside of school
with the exception of a few exceptional teachers… school at large operates counter to the interest of children
we’re taught to fear the prospect of failure… we don’t deserve a second chance.

finding all the geniuses inside.. waiting to be seen/heard/loved.
and imagine if we called – facilitating curiosity – school – in the city – as the day?
7 billion such researchers/entrepreneurs/happy people.. no?
