Inspiration for the new school year

As we start a new school year next week, let’s consider the following idea:

Each minute we live is a new and unique moment of the universe; therefore, let us teach our children to understand that when they see someone of ability, they see a person who has been carefully taught, and who has worked hard to realize their unlimited potential. – Betty Haag-Kuhnke

When you see hundreds of students performing volumes of beautiful music in unison at Orchestra Hall, do you see an amazing pool of talent or do you see an amazing pool of commitment and hard work? What will you choose to teach your children to see?
