Nobel laureate Gabriela Mistral (1889–1957) of Chile was well respected as a humanistic educator. Indicative of the great spirit of compassion and caring with which she interacted with her students is her “Teacher’s Prayer”: “Let me be more mother than the mother herself in my love and defense of the child who is not flesh of my flesh. Help me to make one of my children my most perfect poem and leave within him or her my most melodious melody from that day when my own lips no longer sing.” With this same spirit, let us care for and nurture young people.

Peace and Love, Jim
