Essential Questions
  1. How do we handle individual differences?
Individual differences make the world go round. Being unique is what makes life interesting. If for some reason there is a difference that we do not agree with, we must first do our best to let them be themselves and try to ignore it. However, if it is something that is becomes a real problem, it would be situationally appropriate to politely confront them about it and see what they have to say. If it is something that is truly despicable, it should be easy enough to reason against it. Although, some people are stubborn, and sometimes that won't change, and that is what makes them unique, and you have to tolerate it... agree to disagree.

2. Does tolerance equal acceptance?
No, not in any way, shape or form. There are many things that I disagree with that I tolerate. I know that the world doesn't revolve around me and that some things have to be done for the greater good. To accept something as your own is totally different.

3. Can we tolerate someone/something without agreeing with them/it?
Yes. For example, I don't like the fact that I have homework to do right now. I would much rather have none at all. In that sense I disagree with it. However, I tolerate it because I know that if we didn't have homework I would probably get pretty lousy grades on all of my tests. Even though I don't agree with the amount of homework I have to do some nights I do it because I know that it will benefit me in the long-run.
