I have been a fan of his forever, for so many reasons.
One, I think it takes real balls to get up and out there when you are facially different, and claim stake in an area of diversity that is shied away from.
Two, he’s funny.
Three, he’s accessible, kind.[/vc_column_text][vc_custom_heading text=”David & His Wife Have a New Video Out: Love at Second Sight” font_container=”tag:h2|font_size:56|text_align:left|color:%23000000″ google_fonts=”font_family:Dancing%20Script%3Aregular%2C700|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Ftime_continue%3D186%26v%3DsF_gMDW-ymc||target:%20_blank|”][vc_column_text]Their video, Love at Second Sight, is a little over 20 minutes long.
It’s essentially a training video, it’s shot with a mesmerized group of kids in a school training, and I think it’s remarkable.
Here, you watch it:[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_video link=”https://youtu.be/sF_gMDW-ymc” align=”center” title=”Love At Second Sight”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]I think what is going to make this really perfect for training is an accompanying study guide, or questions to continue the conversation with the kids, ways to further integrate the concepts learned in the video.
So, that’s something to add and expand on.
In the meantime, I’m adding this short to my roster of awesome disability awareness videos.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]
