You Are A Marvel. You Are Unique.

This is a poem written by Pablo Casals.  I read it recently and it stayed with me.  I can’t help but think how much better off would all children be if they had an adult in their lives who told them “you are a marvel.  you are unique.”

Each second we live is a new and unique moment of the universe,

A moment that never was before and never will be again.

And what do we teach our children in school?
We teach them that two and two make four

And that Paris is the capital of France.

When will we also teach them what they are?
We should say to each of them: Do you know what you are?
You are a marvel. You are unique.

In all of the world there is no other child exactly like you.

In the millions of years that have passed, there has never been a child like you.

And look at your body- what a wonder it is!
Your legs, your arms, your cunning fingers, the way you move!
You may become a Shakespeare, a Michelangelo, a Beethoven.

You have the capacity for anything. Yes, you are a marvel.

And when you grow up, can you then harm another who is, like you, a marvel?
You must cherish one another

We must all work-

To make this world worthy of its children.

-Pablo Casals
