Continuing with the topic of self-respect, we narrated the story of Abraham Lincoln in yesterday’s class. Born into abject poverty, grew up in the frontier with little resources, dropped out of school to work on the family farm, largely self-taught, and experienced profound loss early in childhood with the passing away of his mother and sister, Abraham Lincoln’s life was riddled with hardships. And yet, his life story is an extraordinary story of hope, self-respect, self-confidence, honesty, perseverance, equality, great statesmanship, and much more. We talked about how, right from childhood to becoming the president of the United States, Abraham Lincoln exhibited these qualities at every step of his life—we shared some anecdotes from his life that showed how a poor farm boy rose to the level of president and became instrumental in abolishing slavery. We also shared the story that Swami often narrates about the role of his mother, Nancy, in shaping his character.
Children showed great interest in the story and pointed out some of the qualities of Abraham Lincoln that inspired them.
