Today’s tribute continued with a flag raising ceremony at the finish line, followed by a moment of silence.

Having trouble teaching the difficult issues of genocide and global violence? The free teacher’s guide accompanying the Coexist documentary offers some activities to help. Coexist airs on the PBS World Channel on 4/16 at 6pm and 9pm.

It's National Library Week! Make sure your school library includes books that showcase diverse voices. http://www.tolerance.org/magazine/number-46-spring-2014/feature/picture-imperfect

Most school calendars include Christian holidays (like Easter), but it's important to expose students to a range of religious and non-religious worldviews. Comparative religion courses are a great place to start! http://www.tolerance.org/magazine/number-46-spring-2014/feature/good-faith

I think it's a great idea. Unfortunately in the U.S., there would be a huge cry of Christian persecution and indoctrination of the children. I don't get it. What is everyone so afraid of?

Wonder what effect if any, requiring repeat offender bullies to view Passion of Christ may have?

His letter is awesome. What's interesting is how many individuals thought he stood hand and hand with many other leaders at the time and that letter reveals he did not. What a strong Christian man he was, if only we understood today that he didn't fight for the freedom of one race but the equality of all. Judge not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

The #BanBossy campaign is stirring up lots of conversation about gender equity—and that’s a good thing. http://www.tolerance.org/blog/lets-talk-about-bossy
