I think this was what Martin Luther King, Jr was dreaming of all those years ago…

The innocence of children never ceases to impress and amaze me. Opinions and attitudes are programmed into children as they grow up. These prejudices can include views on race, religion and gender stereotypes.

When American comedian Shawn Harris took his son Tyler back to school after being off for a week, the reaction of his class mates really shows this innocence. The way they come over to him and ask if he is ok and welcome him back to school should be a lesson to all of us about how to treat people.

I bet Tyler felt great getting back to school that day.
