For all my constant thoughts and ramblings about EQUALITY, TOLERANCE and INTEGRITY, I realized on a summer's night in August of 2007, in an open field in Troutdale, Oregon that in fact we are NOT all equal. We are not the same.
Case in point - Stevie Wonder is different! The genius kind of different. That transcends generations. And deserves the respect and the love he certainly heard and felt from his audience, for the most part.
For the most part.
At one point this living legend, invited members of the audience up to help him in an audience interaction. These LUCKY people were on stage, NEXT to Stevie Wonder, and do you know what they did? They tried to upstage him. Seriously, they felt as if this was their "Place in the Sun". They failed miserably, but what prompts this? Is it too much reality TV? Is it American Idol-itis? What is it?
Yes, we all deserve our place in the sun. Yes, we are all created equal. We are NOT the same.
And really... bottom line, IT WAS STEVIE WONDER people!!
