There’s a story circulating on Facebook about a group of boys who donned their white shirts, black sportcoats, and ear jacks to dress up as Secret Service men for Halloween. The costumes came about to allow their friend to participate in street clothes — posing as the President — because his religion does not allow him to wear a costume.
It would have been easy to say that their friend “can’t” participate, but instead, the boys displayed creativity in their quest for inclusion. When we want something badly enough, we almost always find ways to achieve it.
Remember these boys the next time you’re ready to be tricked into saying that something “can’t” be done. There is probably an alternative way to get that treat if you work at it.
