You Are Not Special!

"Contrary to what your U9 soccer trophy suggests, your glowing seventh grade report card, despite every assurance of a certain corpulent dinosaur, that nice Mister Rogers and your batty Aunt Sylvia, no matter how often your maternal caped crusader has swooped in to save you, you’re nothing special" David McCullough Jr, 2012

David McCullough Jr. is an English teacher at Wellesley High School in Boston, USA. His speech has gone viral and for good reason, it is brilliant! David has been in the media lately 'defending' the speech but in reality there has been massive overwhelming support / reaction to his considered words.

Here is the video for you to enjoy.

“Climb the mountain not to plant your flag, but to embrace the challenge, enjoy the air and behold the view. Climb the mountain so you can see the world, not so the world can see you.”
