Video of John McKnight’s talk: Libraries of Memories – Come Fly with Me. (18 min)
John McKnight – a talk on the launch of the Virtual Toronto Summer Institute on Sept. 17.2020. John reflected on the Libraries in our memories – and how Marsha Forest, Judith Snow and Pat Worth – live on as great teachers because we remember them. All Means All; Be Present, and Be Connected – along with the invitation: Come Fly with Me.
In John’s Talk he remembered three ‘Libraries’ of our learning – and a book:
All means all
Inclusion is fair play
elegant in its simplicity
and, like love
awesome in its complexity
We must be present
Inclusion is about willingness
to take a unique difference and
develop it as a gift to others.
It is not about disability.
We must be connected
I dream that some day, we will all be able
to see each other by our true names,
for who we really are, in a world without labels.
That would be a great day for the world,
filled with real relationships for all of us.”
