Reality. One week ago while sitting under a fig tree, the youngest boy of a family saw a person approaching. He asked the man for a pen. He wanted to draw a picture. The man asked, “where do you live?” The child answered, “I don’t know.” This is the child’s reality – no food, no home, no shelter. There are too many who answer, “I don’t know” in every country, city, and village. These are the children crossing the Mediterranean to Europe alone, the children living in sewers of Siberia, the restavecs of Haiti, the street children…….Let us join in universal worldwide prayer, blessing, positive thought and energy for all children especially those who answer, “I don’t know.” A quote from Maya Angelou; We can learn to see each other and recognize that human beings are more alike than we are unlike.
