PSIP Description: 
Maya learns to treat others as equals when she tries to stop the kids from playing ball with Andy.
Long Description: 
Miguel recalls the time that a new kid moved into the neighborhood: Andy. As we all know, Andy's missing an arm. Maya, eager to make Andy feel comfortable in their group, tries to steer the boys away from playing sports because she assumes that Andy won't be able to participate. This results in the proverbial unstoppable force (Maya) meeting the immovable object (Miguel and his boys trying to play ball). And besides, the boys don't seem to have any problem with playing ball with Andy. In the end, Maya learns that true sensitivity means treating others as equals.
