Dear Steph, Hanna, Dawn, Kathleen, Eduardo, JJ, Robert and all,
Sudbury Valley has given us an operational definition of freedom. They offer
a deep and profound respect and regard to the child. They busy themselves
with this offering and give up all hope of results, knowing and trusting in
the abilties and capabilities of the child.
Steph has it precisely. We could (as founders, parents and staff) offer this
same deep and profound respect and regard to each other. It is not, in any
sense, good or "right" to do so. But we could.
We would trade being "right" for seeing clearly. We would see clearly
Kathleen's grief, Dawn's rage and Hanna's grace. These folks, and all of us,
are these things and more, much more. Give up being right and we will see how
Deep and warm regards,
