Re: “Let Youth Lead: An Educator Reflects on Her Students' Activism

Thank you for this piece. I was reminded of the courage and humility it takes to be an adult working with children in this world. As Khalil Gibran says in The Prophet, "On Children"
You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You remind us that we adults do our students justice by following them, their visions and dreams for they see possibilities and solutions that we cannot even imagine. Thank you for the powerful reminder. -Melissa Burroughs, Saint Johnsbury, VT
