Thinking about the children starting school today in Florida, all the working parents and the complexity that is launched again into our lives. Not all kids find school to be a safe or good place for a myriad of reasons. When asked, last week, for a back to school summer reading project what cause she wants to be involved in Jessie answered, School bullying because it’s horrible for kids to be at school and feel all alone. You can’t learn when you’re scared.
I worry about our schools, our teachers, our kids, our parents.
All of them.
All of us.
In all walks of life, no kids have it easy. And, we, as parents certainly don’t either.
Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.
My wish and prayers for the 2015/2016 academic year is our kids are kept safe from all, including each other, and in a positive environment where learning is also fun; where teachers care about them as humans and not a number and where their parents create a world of understand when they come home some days and struggle with whatever they do.
All these little humans are the future.
We are trusting in them to create a better world than we will leave for them. They are trusting in us to give them the tools they will need to succeed.
First and foremost a life filled with love.
I Corinthians 13:13
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
