A Stroke of Luck
Late one afternoon, a friend phoned me and asked if I'd like to go see a play. The play's title?: The Secret Garden. I saw the play with her; we both cried so hard. It was a beautiful story. Soon after, I read the book. I highly encourage you to read it; it's mysteriously heart-warming to the point of almost fear. You'll be mezmorized and fall into the world of little orphan Mary Lenox.
Uplifting powerful story
This story is a powerful example of the fundamental lessons that are the building blocks of individual empowerment in great societies. How children use the power of their own minds to overcome perceived obstacles. The inherent ability of children to decide, on their own, what they value in people and in life, and using their self-realized power to bring that into themselves and their lives. It highlights the effects this has on those around the children during the whole process. Highly motivational.
