Aren’t We All Miracles?

The seventh grade had a rather lively discussion this morning about the following quote from Albert Einstein:

There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.

One of the comments that truly stood out for me came from Kate:

Everything in life is either a miracle or a step towards one.

What do you think? Do you agree or disagree with Einstein? Is there a third possibility, somewhere in the middle? How would you choose to live your life?

I hope that helps. Be sure to email me with any questions. As for tomorrow, you do have free dress, but keep in mind you need to be able to run, jog, walk, and/or skip in whatever outfit you choose.

Also, I will be posting a new question for The Giver later today that will be due by Friday. Be on the lookout!
