Great post! I want to bring your attention to this part: "Not everyone is deep enough, not everyone is sufficiently broad minded." I'd love to see you rewrite that without using the "is" - meaning, can you describe what you mean when you say someone "isn't" deep or broad-minded enough?

My prediction, in rot13 so you can do the exercise before seeing it:
