    Discrimination in different ways This section is all about accepting others and their choices. Each of the stories or movie, that I have picked somehow, gives out the idea of accepting others. However, each one portrays acceptance in a different way. It's not always about accepting people for whom they are. Its also about accepting the choices that people make.

    Is there ever a time when not hiring someone for a position due to their age is acceptable? The only time I can think this may apply is for positions such as pilots, police officer, or any other position that requires heavy physical activity. I question that thinking at times, though.

I shared this incident with Dr. Kilolo Brodie, Dr. Jane Rousseau, and Dr. Katie Galvin after class, on September 1, 2016, when the four of us gathered for dinner.
