This quote reminded me of Bronfenbrenner's Theory. Parents, schools, neighborhoods, and communities all play a role in the development of a gifted student. If you give a child the right support, love, and encouragement (analogous to the red shoes), they can "conquer the world" much like this little girl here. Parents and educators must remember just how influential they are in the lives of children and use this influence in a positive way.
Another one of my favorite verses... Sometimes I do let those walls down and end up getting hurt but NO MORE!!! God is my protector! He is the only One who can hold my heart. Hopefully one day, instead of me letting the walls down, God will for the perfect man for me!
