I would teach each child to feel warmly about the peers
for whom the task of learning does not come easily.
I would teach each one to be kind towards all living creatures and
to crowd out of their lives feelings of guilt, misunderstanding and lack of compassion.
I would teach each child that it is all right to show their feelings,
by laughing, crying or touching someone they care about.
Every day I would have each child feel special, and through my actions,
each one would know how much I really care.
