?this I believe?

There was a quote from a famous musical “people who are different, there time is coming” I Personally loved the show but….who decides what is “different”? Also what’s “normal”? No one is exactly the same inside and out! Is white normal? Fat, skinny, short. Tall, black, Mexican, Asian? I believe these thoughts of different start in school, not kindergarten where it’s easy to make friends, but in grade school where the cliques start to form and the pressure to be “in” is so strong that it can lead to bad things! For example tons of teenagers die from suicide (from depression) each day! Also teasing can scar children lives forever. I’m not saying this is a problem that can be easily fixed but, should be focused on! This is why I believe you can’t define normal.
