Columnist Barb Guy emailed an interesting query after reading about a Utah man’s efforts to place posters reading “In God We Trust” in every classroom across the state.
Barb asks: “If you were the type to insist one crucial message be posted in each every classroom, what would your message be?” She’s compiling results for her column, and her question inspired me to wonder what message I thought school age children would most benefit from.
Hmm. Fun one, huh?
I quickly landed on: “You create your world.”
That’s what I’d like to see kids reminded of. That they’re in charge. That by choosing how they feel, they dramatically alter their life experience.
“You create your world.”
They would learn no one else is to blame. That the answer lies within. And that anything is possible. As P’taah says: “Imagination and emotion is what creates your reality.”
But then I realized that message would be better placed in workplaces across America, because adults could probably benefit more from being reminded of it than our children. : )
What message do you wish you’d had reinforced as a child in school? I’d be interested in hearing it.
