One of the easiest and safest ways to get the job done is by means of parables. Socrates used parables. Demosthenes used parables. Jesus used parables. And they taught some of the most difficult subjects in the world. Lions and Tigers and Bears is a parable written to cause introspection and challenge beliefs concerning our diversity and how it impacts relationships and social intercourse.

The Lions and Tigers and Bears presentation is conducting using the same methodology.
