"I’ve taken part in several Aware2Act (un)Game events. After each event what came to mind was the quote from the movie, Sleepless in Seattle, “It was like magic.” That a group of strangers can come together; engage in thoughtful, respectful, deep conversation; express their innermost feelings; and never stumble into small talk, is in my mind magical. And that is what happens during an (un)Game event. Some participants choose to simply listen, but many express their struggles, stories of times they floundered, shame about moments of failure, and stories of trauma. That such depth can be reached in around 60 minutes of game time astounds me. All that is shared is facilitated by the un(Game) through the use of thought provoking quotes and short videos which facilitate communication about discrimination. After participating I feel a sense of strong connection with other imperfect humans like myself, each of us struggling to be better individuals. Even weeks later I continue pondering the content discussed and feel gratitude for those who opened their hearts and shared so selflessly. That "just" playing the (un)Game has resulted in long lasting introspection of my heart feels transformative and truly like magic. "- Shari Gullo
