Small Wonder

At the high school I teach, we are expected to assign meaningful finals at the end of each semester.  For my yoga classes, I ask them to respond to three writing prompts, create their own practice in writing and pictures, and then offer an inspirational quote.  I received this inspirational submission from a young man who is a freshman, and I received it one day after reading this article here.  Frankly, after you watch this you will realize why I have nothing else to add:  this is Neil deGrasse Tyson, astrophysicist, responding to the inquiry, what is 'The Most Astounding Fact'.  I hope you have a little over three minutes to watch this.
