Blog 84 - Ed Sheeran's Video on Being Weird
But today I have a new appreciation of Ed. Why? Because the following video was posted on my Facebook page today. My friends all know my passion for advocacy and spreading awareness of difference and diversity, so I knew it must have something in it that would fit within my agenda. I wondered what. I was definitely curious.
What I heard Ed say surprised me. In particular there were things about Ed that I had never heard reported in the media before that he talked about: 1) He was born with a port-wine stain birthmark on his face and 2) He had a stutter.
By Ed telling his story, he will touch many more hearts in the world, not just because of his music. It is awesome to see people who are looked at as being influences in the world, saying it's cool to be quirky and not to lose your individuality.
I urge you to watch the video too.
Go Ed! Keep telling the world that it's okay to be different!
