The only true joy on earth is to escape from the prison of our own false self, and enter, by love, into union with the Life who dwells, and sings, within the essence of every creature, and in the core of our own souls.

Bird: A Space of Grace’s Photo
I'm awed by the beauty of nature and the power of love and gratitude. Some of my favorite sensory experiences include waves crashing on rocky shores, waterways in ancient redwood and fern-filled forests, and rain. My wife and I have been married since 1979. We have 3 adult children and 5 grandchildren. I manage a wealth management firm that I founded in 2003. My Beloved is a Special Education teacher for Kindergartners and First Graders. I'm a published author of approximately 60 books in a variety of genres for grownups and children.

A powerful lesson from a very wise teacher…
I agree. It is an excellent example of how a single person can make a big difference in the lives of many, including many people she will never meet. Thank you for your comment, Mimi.
One amazing lesson for pupils!
May they remember it for the rest of their lives.
Surely they will, something like that you don’t forget!
I believe you are right!
Beautifully put , and I should know ….. my story , truly my story, http://willowdot21.wordpress.com/2012/04/13/its-nothing-less-than-abuse-2/ followed by some of my takes on how it goes on for many children today.
sorry to go on. hugs xxxxxxx
I’m sorry your school experience involved so much bullying. I spent way too much of my school years in fear. Thank you for speaking up and taking a stand against bullying!
The bully lesson is so spot on I am 50 now but I can still remember how it felt to be bullied at school
Me too. Thank you for our comment, Joanne.
Not bullying is not intuitive to children. Those elder and wiser must teach them the dangers and pain of bullying. Great post : )
Thank you for your kind comment and insights, Cassandralee.

That’s a great lesson. Wise and very visual way to get the message across to the students.
Simple and powerful. My favorite kind of lesson.
What an amazing teacher,there should be more of her kind. It is so sad that bullying is still going on in schools today. Maybe we should send this letter to a few schools.
