Speak to Us of Children is based on the works of Lebanese-American Author, Poet and Philosopher Kahlil Gibran.
I first read this most complete explanation of what being a parent really means, early in my teaching career.
Then I had children of my own, and as I felt the gut wrenching grip of parental fear come over me time and time again … the words from this beautiful prose poem would bring me back to the basics, and I would “know” what to do … or not do!
The most meaningful phrases for me were:
Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
though they are with you, yet they belong not to you.
And as soon as I’d revisit this concept, I’d immediately begin to feel better… It is my hope that you will enjoy this movie and find peace, solace and direction through its message. Please feel free to pass this along to those who will appreciate receiving it from you.
If you like this video clip, I encourage you to share it with the world and join me on my mission to empower and inspire millions of people around the globe.
At the end of this video you’ll see simple instructions on how you can help.
Together we can spread words of Encouragement, Inspiration & Empowerment one video at a time… and wouldn’t you agree our world could use a little more “Positivity” these days!
Reaching out …
