This is a video that should probably be watched by older students, as some of the topics that it brings up might need to be discussed in a mature way. However, I love the concept of this PSA from the Anti-Defamation League. The premise is that some of the famous people, such as Martin Luther King Jr., who we lost far too early, would still be alive today and achieving even greater things if hatred did not exist. This would make for great class discussions, and inspire some research projects for some of the lesser known people featured. Even if you don’t show the video to your class, this could certainly be an interesting assignment, to choose a victim of hate and envision the contributions he or she could have made to this world if that person’s life had not been cut short.
