The Scare Crows Beautiful Brain
Most kids love watching the Wizard of Oz. I never felt this way, though the horses changing colors was pretty exciting. As Dorothy came closer to meeting the Scare Crow, I became more and more tense. I thought his need for a brain was also mine. Years into adulthood, I would often feign arrogance as a means to hide the false belief that I was inferior. I’m happy to report that the Scare Crow and I are now proud of our beautiful brains.
As Crosby, Stills and Nash said, “Treat Your Children Well”. Don’t tell them they are stupid. Don’t let a sibling tell them they are stupid.
