The Harlem Boys LitClub Celebrates Everyday Brilliance

Yesterday at LitClub, I asked each boy as he walked through the door, “What was a moment when you were proud of yourself this past week?

“A good report card;”

“Last catch in a football game;”

“A birthday coming up this Saturday, and it’s the only thing I’m able to think about right now.”

As I sat, I looked around at them and knew that they were proud of themselves because they had all done something simple but amazing. And that they were the better for it. I’m glad that LitClubs allow children to see their own perfections and wonderments; allow them to discover the knowledge that they each radiate amazement all the time.
