We Are All Children

Innocence: the quality or state of being innocent; freedom from sin or moral wrong. Freedom from legal or specific wrong; guiltlessness: The prisoner proved his innocence.

Angela Hardy

Below are the words from a very special women from Quebec, Canada that my wife and I have come to love in a very short amount of time. Her artwork is phenomenal and is on display as my websites masthead this month (Beat to different Drum" picture). As Angela mentioned earlier this evening: "Love you too !!!! you know in that non-swinger , soul brother kinda way xxx seriously ... Family". She is part of our family now. Below are the words she wrote in response to the Sandy Hook tragedy. I believe them to be beautiful... as beautiful as she is and as beautiful as the art that she creates. Thanks Angela, who you are is gift.

We are all children.

Humanities heart is heavy.

Heaven cradles with open arms.

Children love unconditionally.

Do not burden and break them with lessons of fear, hate and anger.

Let them continue to be our teachers.

Hearts need healing.

People need to be held.



Smiled at.

Given a kind touch and loving word.

Show love and kindness to those you know.

Show love and kindness to a stranger.

Most important give love and kindness to those who you would least wish to give it.

You are the change.

Beautiful unconditional change.

Respect your Teacher.

Do not harden.

Their innocence is the lesson.

Do not take it from those that still have it.

Give it back to those that have lost it.

Respect our children.

We are teachers.

We are all students.

We are all children.
