Certainly Summerhill changed my life. I discovered it reading one of Anthony De Mello's books. He recommended to read Summerhill, the book, paying more attention than we would reading the Bible. He was right. I also read a lot of books by Erich Fromm, the Prophet of Love. He praises Neill and his intuition that freedom is how you make children happy and cure Humanity's problems. Wars, conflicts, crime and obsessions originate from unhappiness. Neill's ideas helped me build my website about teenage depression. Thanks to Neill I now understand that freedom is one of the best antidepressants in the world. That Summerihill survived the attacks our profoundly sick society launched against it gives me hope that we may make it. I wish Summerhill to survive and thrive for another century and way more.
