Today, a strange thing happened. Out of the blue, the young ladies at today’s kickoff meeting of the  Girls Rule! / Gompers Fine Arts Option School program, asked me about a workshop I conduct called “The Power of Words.” Apparently a teacher had seen it on NBC and mentioned it to them.

Their questions prompted a brief conversation about how sometimes people use words to bring you down, because they are jealous of a valuable quality you possess, or for various other reasons.  At the end of the discussion a 6th participant said,

“Hmmm….Sometimes people pick on what you think is your weakness, because it’s really your strength.”

How sussinct. These 12 and 13 year olds learned a lesson it takes some years to learn. Girls really do Rule!
