This presentation came about as request from teachers to talk to their students about respect. The Dr. King quote provided me with an ephinay and serves as the theme of my presentation. I have given this talk to thousands of high school students since 2000, but the presentation you see here is MUCH better than the text heavy ppt I was using thanks to the creative genius of Tou Lee Yang!

    I am impressed with your idea , with the way you made the presentation and the strong message of it . As a teacher , I am fully aware of the immense role of education . I hope we will be able to make a change , try to teach tolerance , friendship , less egoism . I hope in a peaceful , better future.

  • I want to compliment you.
    The greatest tragedy of Humanity, is the apathy ahead of problems.We can help in some way.
    An observation: You are missing a person in the photo of 'Dictator.' You are missing the president of Brazil, who is a friend of them all, and most faithful follower of Fidel.(He only is not friend or follower of BIN LADEN)
    Thank you!!
    Greetings from Brasil.
