  1. Brilliantly written letter and I am so glad you posted it. Sometimes we can all lose sight of what is really important in life. Maybe it would be a good idea for everyone to post copies of this in all parts of their home – “there are many ways of being smart” that’s for sure.

  2. I heard about it on Radio 4 too – I think it’s very important, great it got air-time, and it says much about our education (and society) that so many people responded so strongly to it. We all need a spot of resilience to help us cope with life’s reverses – and poetry rejections 🙂 – that’s for sure!
