What can we do, as citizens to promote tolerance in our daily lives ?
Everyone is in some way prejudice, including me. We need to look inward and admit that it is there and they may change as we mature. If you accept that we all have room to grow and learn, then we realize sometime we are the teacher and sometimes the student. I have been on both sides of the topic, maybe we need to learn to laugh at ourselves once in a while.

How can we empower kids to reshape the education system? *A TEDActive Education Project Question*
I feel our education system has become a reflection of our world. We spend our time answering questions and informing our superiors rather than passing down in order to train and inform subordinates and students. "Do as I say, not as I do" does not work. If we want our children to learn to be empowered and proactive, we need the people teaching them to be empowered and proactive. This includes the parents as well as the teachers. Whatever happened to thinking outside the box. We have come to a point where we are expected to conform with what is the standard, standard has become our goal.
