4 Candles and Pandora’s Box


If you are anything like me you get dozens of forwards a day via e-mail. Some of them are really ridiculous, others are wearingly repetitive and yet others are simply a waste of time. But once in a while one comes along that stands out because it is just a little better than the rest, either in terms of actual content or in terms of presentation. Earlier this term I shared one with you regarding the world as it might look in 2070 (you can view it in the post bearing the same name). Now, here is one more- not as topical perhaps as the previous one, but relevant nonetheless. It reminds me very much of the story of Pandora’s Box, with its message of Hope in the midst of great trouble. If you have never read the story of Pandora’s Box, I have also provided here a link to a site that carries a very brief version of the mythological tale. Feel free to search the web for more detailed versions.


After you’ve viewed the 4 candles site as well as read the Pandora story, I’d be very interested to see what you have to say about the similarities or differences between the two.

  1. Wow Mrs V, the four candles video was fantastic….i guess that the most important thing in life is that no matter how bad things are, we should never give up for there is always that glimmer of hope…i guess its true,huh…a child is truly innocent…..

    with hope for the future,bye!

  2. So glad you liked it. I think it is just when we feel that there is no hope that hope is most needed.

    And by the way- Harry Potter does rock!

  3. I’m glad you think so. Right now I am going through a bit of a lull as I try to get through the marking that has piled up but once I get a breather I will work on a brand new entry. Watch this space!
