Last week I published an episode, reflecting on children in wars, in the wake of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
Trying to foster hope in my heart and inquire what I can do in times like these.
Sparks of hopes for me are reading wisdom words:
§ Our purpose does not lie in a movement to create professional musicians, but to create people of beautiful minds and fine ability through an unparalleled, uniquely musical approach. We engage in human education through music so that children will grow beautifully with high sensitivity. - Dr Shinichi Suzuki
§ To teach the arts to children is nothing less than to be charged with their destiny. -Dr Katoaka
§ This will be our reply to violence: to make music more intensely, more beautifully, more devotedly than ever before. -Leonard Bernstein.
