The world needs all kinds of minds

Temple Grandin has long been someone I've admired, respected, and learned from.  As a person who has autism, an educator (not in the traditional sense), and designer she has made me understand people with Autism more.  This year she was given the opportunity to speak at the TED conference.  TED is basically a showcase of some of the smartest people in the world and they are given 18 min. to talk about whatever they like.  Temple chose to talk about how we need "all kinds of minds" in our world.  I happen to agree wholeheartedly with her.  If you have a chance you need to take 20 min. and watch this video!
