Trusting kids

If we listen, kids have so much to tell us - especially about themselves. From composer Samuel Barber at 9 years old:

Dear Mother: I have written this to tell you my worrying secret. Now don’t cry when you read it because it is neither yours nor my fault. I suppose I will have to tell it now without any nonsense. To begin with I was not meant to be an athlet [sic]. I was meant to be a composer, and will be I’m sure.
— Samuel Barber
