Saturday Centus

People have taken such different tangents to Jenny's prompt this week. So here I go



"What would you like to do in life?" Mum would ask me when I was a girl. "I'd like to teach the world to sing," I'd say. And she would nod- without laughing, without teasing but with an air of plain understanding. How could she take me so seriously? But her conviction inspired me

Years later as a music teacher, I received a lot of media attention when I won an award. My mom smiled with satisfaction as she looked at the papers. I peered over her shoulder at the headline “Mute girl teaches the world to sing.”
