Description

Abstract

This paper is part of the journey that I have already begun to traverse in deciding to accept my own difference, acknowledge the reaction it causes in people, and, like Morrie Schwartz, refuse to be silenced because of it. Morrie spoke of meeting Krishnamurti, an Indian philosopher, who told him to “question all your presuppositions about life and living—about… your society, yourself, and what you expect and accept. The world is not a given” (Schwartz 113). My questioning of why I felt my face was different led me to examine the role that Mr. Grady played in my understanding of myself—and then, most importantly, to reject that view.
