    Thank you for sharing this Margaret. Back in school, I had a smart philosophy teacher. On the first day she came to class, she threw the philosophy book away and said who cares about what's in the book. I am here to challenge your minds, I am simply here to disturb you, to make you angry. As students who were not at all familiar with such an approach we were surprised. It kind of hit us, we started to ask ourselves, is she crazy? what is she supposed to be doing here then? I sat in silence, good silence. I listened to her openheartedly. I was indeed challenged, surprised, and curious. I am extremely grateful for that philosophy class, for I learned about life and the complexity of our thinking far more than what I would have learned from the book.
