 A Mother's Letter to the World

Dear World

My son starts school todayIts going to be strange and new to him for a whileAnd I wish you would sort of treat him gently

You seeup to nowhes been king of the roostHes been boss of the back yardI have always been around to repair his woundsand to soothe his feelings

But nowthings are going to be different

This morninghes going to walk down the front stepswave his hand and start on his great adventure that will probably include wars and tragedy and sorrowTo live his life in the world he has to live in will require faith and love and courage

SoWorldI wish you would sort of take him by his young hand and teach him the things he will have to knowTeach himbut gentlyif you canTeach him that for every scoundrelthere is a herothat for everycrooked politician there is a dedicated leaderthat for every enemy there is a friendTeach him the wonders of booksGive him quiet time to ponder the eternal mystery of birds in the skybees in the sunand flowers on the green hillTeach him it is far more honorable to fail than to cheatTeach him to have faith in his own ideaseven if everyone else tells him they are wrongTeach him to sell his brawn and brains to the highest bidderbut never to put a price on his heart and soulTeach him to close his ears to a howling mob...and to stand and fight if he thinks hes rightTeach him gentlyWorldbut dont coddle himbecause only the test of fire makes fine steel

This is a big orderWorldbut see what you can doHes such a nice little fellow

一位母亲写给世界的信

亲爱的世界:

我的儿子今天开始上学。在一段时间内,他都会感到既陌生又新鲜。我希望你能对他温和一点。

你知道,直到现在,他一直是家里的小皇帝;一直是后院的主人。我一直在他身边,为他料理伤口,给他感情上的慰藉。

可是现在一切都将发生变化。今天早晨,他将走下屋前的台阶,挥挥手,踏上他伟大的冒险征途,途中也许会有战争、悲剧和伤痛。要在他必须生存的世界中生活需要信念、爱心和勇气。

所以,世界,我希望你握住他稚嫩的手,教他必须知道的一些事情。教他,但如果可能的话,温柔点儿。教他知道,世界上有一个恶棍,就有一个英雄;有一个奸诈的政客,就有一个富有奉献精神的领袖;有一个敌人,就有一个朋友。教他感受书本的魅力。给他时间,去安静地思索自然界中永恒的神秘:空中的小鸟,阳光下的蜜蜂,青山上的花朵。教他知道,失败比欺骗要光荣得多。教他要坚信自己的思想,哪怕别人都予以否定。教他可把自己的体力和脑力以最高价出售,但绝对不要出卖自己的心灵和灵魂。教他对暴徒的嚎叫置若罔闻……并且在认为自己是对的时候站出来战斗。以温柔的方式教导他,世界,但不要溺爱 他,因为只有烈火才能炼出真钢。

这是个很高的要求,世界,但请你尽力而为。他是一个多么可爱的小伙子。
