I could give
all my relations –
all who share this earth
the most meaningful of gifts –
a world where each one is cherished,
where all are supported to express their full potential,
able to find joy and appreciate the beauty and wonder of life,
in neighborhoods, towns and nations guided by love
in a blessed and magical world

These thoughts were inspired by a recent post by Trace Lara Hentz on The MIX, and a powerful quote.
If you have young children, before you fall off to sleep tonight, I want you to hold your child. Touch your child’s face. Smell your child’s hair. Count the fingers on your child’s hand. See the miracle that is your child. And then, with as much vision as you can muster, I want you to imagine that your child is black. (George Yancy (2015, December 24), Professor of Philosophy at Emory University, New York Times)
All of the children in the whole world are miracles. All are our relations and responsibility.
