Great point on Judging others. As we are all students with differing backgrounds, how many times must we be reminded of the thoughtlessness in our judgment of others. It really hits a deep chord when we catch ourselves doing so, but in that awareness we grow and refrain from doing it further. Wonderful video. Thanks Aish, David
