The following appeared in a 1968 issue of a teen magazine called Fave. The magazine had apparently published a letter addressed to Spock the month before, written by a mixed-race girl who was having trouble finding her place. Leonard Nimoy was moved and penned a detailed response that didn't just offer words of courage, but concrete advice on how to overcome.

Nimoy seems to know that you shouldn't poke other people their sore spots or hold a grudge.

As a result he seems to be popular and well liked and gets along with everyone.

Well, it's really good advice. Sometimes JR curses me and my Vulcan logic. chuckle.gif

Reminds me of my kid, a band student from grade 5 to 12. Most people know band students are considered geeks. The band students would hide their instruments and not tell anybody they played in the band, fearing the jeering. My kid would sling her clarinet over her shoulder and walk to her next class with pride in her musical talent, not shame. Extraordinary kid yay.gif

I never did understand why that stigma was attached to the band - when music is such an important aspect in growing up and the universal language for us all.

When I was in jr. and sr. high, I joined the choirs, year in and year out, and there seemed to be no stigma attached with that. dunno.gif

I'm not aware of any such thing such thing here, but parents are probably the last to know. Both my kids are geeks and don't give a shït what people think about that. hi5.gif
