Weekly Reflection May 9, 2022
Path in the hills behind campus

 

A decade ago, the Chilean author Isabel Allende gave a speech at our Upper School commencement. You can read her whole speech below. It is hilarious! For our weekly reflection, we have this excerpt:

“You are empowered by the best education available, and in this school you learn to use your power and resources to help others. It’s in giving that one becomes rich; the only wealth that counts is in the soul. All the rest can be lost in a second. I have started from scratch several times. I have had to pack a small bag, close my house with everything it contains, and leave for good. And believe me, each time I have promptly forgotten what I lost. Stuff is irrelevant. Sooner or later we have to throw overboard our possessions, vanities, and ambitions; only the good we have done matters.”

Bless all your work! What you do truly matters.
