What Becomes Of The Broken Hearted

Favorite Line(s):
The roots of love
Grow all around
But for me they come
A tumblin’ down
Every day heartaches grow
A little stronger
I can’t stand
This pain much longer
I walk in shadows
I’m searching for light
Cold and alone,
No comfort in sight
Hoping and praying
For someone to care
Always moving and
Goin’ nowhere
What becomes of the broken-hearted
Who had love that’s now departed?
I know I’ve got to find
Some kind of peace of mind
Help me

There are occasions when you can hear the mysterious language of the Earth, in water, or coming through the trees, emanating from the mosses, seeping through the undercurrents of the soil; but you have to be willing to wait and receive.

The “growth mindset” in simple terms means that when students believe that they can get smarter, they understand that effort makes them stronger.
The student with a growth mindset put in extra time and extra effort and this leads to higher achievement.
The growth mindset student possesses the tendency to embrace challenges, persist in the face of setbacks, see effort as the path to mastery, learn from criticism and find lessons and inspiration in the success of others.
