Kindness and Inclusion at the Jam Session


--by lesleetessman, posted Sep 14, 2017
I was enjoying listening to wonderful music at a jam session and one of the people who wanted to go up and jam was not being included. I heard him say, "They always leave the Indians for last" He seemed very angry. So I went up to the man who was organizing the jam and told him that this man thought he was being left out because he was an Indian (Native American).

The organizer apologized for the oversight. The Native American guy went up and played his drums. When he came back to his seat he had a big smile on his face and said," That was so fun!"
I felt good being

able to see a place where a little bit of kindness and inclusion was needed!
