We read the book, ‘Wonder’ by R.J.Palacio, which is about a boy who looks different to most people. Auggie has a severe form of Treacher-Collins Syndrome, causing a cranio-facial difference.
As Auggie says, the Earth is full of billions of people. “People of all different colours. People who walk and talk differently. People who look different. Like me!”
“The Earth is big enough for all kinds of people.”
“I know I can’t change the way I look. But maybe, just maybe... people can change the way they see. If they do, they’ll see that I’m a wonder. And they’ll see that they’re a wonder too. We’re all wonders!” - Auggie (Wonder, RJ Palacio)
Each one of us is CHOSEN by God, MATTERS to God and is LOVED by God. God wants us to treat one another with LOVE and KINDNESS.
"If every single person in this room made it a rule that wherever you are, whenever you can, you will try to act a little kinder than is necessary– the world would be a better place. And if you do this, if you act just a little kinder than is necessary, someone else, somewhere, someday, may recognise in you, in every single one of you, the face of God.” -Mr Tushman (Wonder, RJ Palacio)
Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can. - John Wesley
