I've listened to a couple of fantastic TED talks lately. (If you're interested, I recommend this one. And this.) And if you have any favorites, I'd love to know about them; they make such lovely distraction while I'm exercising.
At the end of one of Ken Robinson's talks about education he said:
"Everyday, everywhere our children spread their dreams beneath our feet. And we should tread softly."
Those words gave me chills and made me misty-eyed. And they've sort of been haunting me for two days. The implications are so heavy and big.
I also listened to this incredible talk recently. Elder Eyring's words about seeking revelation as to who our children really are, and what they're here to do is sitting deep in my mother heart. (This talk was given in the priesthood session of general conference - an all male audience. I changed two phrases to make it gender inclusive.)
