Each human life is a pearl of inestimable value. At our core, every one of us born into this bridght, troubled world is a being a radiant complexity and unspeakable worth. We are all, as the psalmist had it, "fearfully and wonderfully made." whethere we ascend some vaunted ladder of fortune or abide within a hiddend life whether we achieve great things or small, whether we are clever, average, or dull, whehter pleasing to the eye or possessed of a countenance only a mother could love, we are each of us so great a miracle of creation as to make all the vagaries of station, stature, and strength like the window dressings fro a masterpiece.And yet there are lives, like that of my sister, Mary, that possess within them such enormous, silent possibility for both misery and joy, foundering and flourishing, that there falls perhaps upon all of us a shared obligation to intervene, a collective responsibility to assure protection and safety in the lives of the vulnerable.1. the first fundamental error is the following: any child can ben harmed and undone if the stressors are sufficiently pervasive, pernicious, and severe. Another mistake provoked by the assumption that differences in childhood adversity effects are attributable to vulnerable and resilient children is the misimpression that the "vulnerable" are susceptible only to negative environments and are indifferent to positive conditions. But what our research has shown repeatedly is that sensitive, susceptible children have more powerful, influential responses to boh negative, stressful circumstances and to positive, caring, and supportive conditions.2. The second fundamental error we have typically made is the assumption that so-called resilient children are rare, isolated occurrences within a sea of childhood vulnerability.vulnerability is really sensitivity, which carries with it a capacity for a remarkable reversal of fortune within positive, supportive environments.
