There is separation of colored people from white people in the United States. -Einstein

Albert Einstein spoke these words against Apartheid and in favor of Civil Rights, in May 11, 1946.

“There is separation of coloured people from white people in the United States. That separation is not a disease of coloured people. It is a disease of white people. I do not intend to be quiet about it.”

1946 was a rather long time before it became accepted to be Fair and Human as a Person, as a Scientist and as a simple Human Being.

Here is some background about Albert Einstein’s early life and studies as well as a snippet about his later work and achievements.

Einstein taught us that it is okay to have special interests, because when he was nine – he went to high school.

There, he spent only 3–4 hours a week studying math and science.He was an odd kid, and eventually, he was asked to leave high school and he did it.

His home was the only place where he could pursue his interests. Later in life, his special interests led him to win the Nobel Prize and become one of the most famous theoretical physicists in the world.

Expose your child to a wide variety of activities and encourage them once they find something they love. Quirky hobbies can be particularly helpful for kids who don’t exactly fit in at school, because the very fact they are specially good or even gifted at something they like to engage with — will surely affect their confidence positively.

The key here is Imagination because that is the answer to enlarging one’s horizons… 

Albert Einstein was the biggest advocate of imagination and creativity.

He said, “Logic will get you from A to Z; imagination will get you everywhere.” Children have a particularly vivid imagination. Let them use it. Help them fantasize. Encourage them to visualize they’ll be doing something important or fulfilling when they grow up.

Their dreams might seem unrealistic at the moment, but don’t lower their expectations. It is important they are thinking about their goals.

Persistence needs to be encouraged, because when he was just a child, Albert Einstein was considered dyslexic and a slow learner.

As a matter of fact — many adults around him, including teachers, all thought that he was stupid.

Later on, he had problems in school that kept him back and caused him to lose and have to repeat a whole year…

Then, he failed in his first attempt to enroll into Zurich Polytechnic University.

Well before the Second World War — he was targeted by the German Nazis with assassination.

As you can see, obstacles and challenges were all around him.

However, he persisted and achieved his goals.

We all have come and will come across many setbacks in our lives as well.

Yet, that too shall pass…

Diversity is key, love all others even the haters is a gift to yourself, optimism and imagination are potent weapons, perseverance and autonomy are highly valued, and self confidence is a path to a long & happy life.

Yours,

Dr Churchill

Well Done Albert, Man of Genius…
