[00:05.85]019.A Mother’s Letter to the World

[00:14.85]Dear World:

[00:16.37]My son starts school today.

[00:18.96]It’s going to be strange and new to him for a while.

[00:22.84]And I wish you would sort of treat him gently.

[00:26.24]You see, up to now, he’s been king of the roost.

[00:29.93]He’s been boss of the back yard.

[00:32.56]I have always been around to repair his wounds, and to soothe his feelings.

[00:37.70]But now - things are going to be different.

[00:41.27]This morning, he’s going to walk down the front steps,

[00:44.83]wave his hand and start on his great adventure

[00:46.94]that will probably include wars and tragedy and sorrow.

[00:52.74]To live his life in the world he has to live in will require faith and love and courage.

[00:58.90]So, World, I wish you would sort of take him by his young hand

[01:02.10]and teach him the things he will have to know.

[01:05.25]Teach him - but gently, if you can.

[01:08.35]Teach him that for every scoundrel, there is a hero;

[01:11.63]that for every crooked politician there is a dedicated leader;

[01:15.63]that for every enemy there is a friend.

[01:18.45]Teach him the wonders of books.

[01:20.54]Give him quiet time to ponder the eternal mystery of birds in the sky,

[01:25.39]bees in the sun, and flowers on the green hill.

[01:28.75]Teach him it is far more honorable to fail than to cheat.

[01:33.57]Teach him to have faith in his own ideas,

[01:35.57]even if everyone else tells him they are wrong.

[01:39.68]Teach him to sell his brawn and brains to the highest bidder,

[01:43.35]but never to put a price on his heart and soul.

[01:46.70]Teach him to close his ears to a howling mob...

[01:49.50]and to stand and fight if he thinks he’s right.

[01:52.58]Teach him gently, World, but don’t coddle him,

[01:55.88]because only the test of fire makes fine steel.

[02:00.09]This is a big order, World, but see what you can do.

[02:03.85]He’s such a nice little fellow.
