Lessons from Sesame Street
For 40 years, one place has taught the world more than any other about leadership and perseverance, tolerance and respect. On Sesame Street believing in yourself is job one, making a difference is a daily event and ethnic harmony isn't a dream. It's a reality.
"Big Bird and his gang teach us all that leaders must embrace not only ideology but also our own thought," writes Dean Akande in his commentary for Anderson Cooper's AC360 for CNN. "Leaders who believe in more than sociological statistics but in real people; and those who trust not only the objective interpretation of reality, but their inner soul, can all learn from the "Street."
"This is hands down the best article that I have read in months," writes Paulette on CNN's blog. "I am not an American. I live in Canada but do believe that what you have so beautifully written applies to us all no matter what country we live in."
This week Sesame Street celebrated 40 years of bringing all of us, young and old, its unique mix of education and entertainment. Here's wishing a happy anniversary and many more sunny days to the SBT's favorite street.
