Teo and I had a conversation after he spoke to over 500 students, grades 3-5. Teo talked a lot to the kids about including everyone in social activities in school, their neighborhoods and on the playground. Some may be autistic and others may be shy and still others just may need a friend. I thought it went really well and asked Teo what he thought. 

He said, “The truth is that they all want to be accepting but yet remain cool. So if everyone shifts to acceptance, that becomes the new cool.”
