Piano Lessons

I'm watching a reality show where there are 2 boys in the family. The older boy is progressing well on the piano. He's even composed songs. The younger brother isn't doing quite as well. He feels a lot of pressure to be like his older brother. This kind of pressure can either propel or paralyze.

Which one am I? I am the older child who sets the standards by which the rest of the family is judged. I'm not saying it's right. That's just the way it is. I believe that people, especially children, should be acknowledged for their individual talents. Comparing siblings is a comparison of apples and oranges.

Random Thought: I love this song. It always reminds me of my childhood.

I'd like to build the world a home
And furnish it with love
Grow apple trees and honey bees
And snow-white turtle doves (This is the only part I remember.)

Chorus:I'd like to teach the world to sing
In perfect harmony
I'd like to hold it in my arms
And keep it company(That's the song I hear)
I'd like to see the world for once(Let the world sing today)
All standing hand in hand
And hear them echo through the hills
For peace throughout the land
That's the song I hear(That's the song I hear)
Let the world sing today(Let the whole wide world keep singing)
A song of peace that echoes on
And never goes away

Put your hand in my hand
Let's begin today
Put your hand in my hand
Help me find a way
