One of our most precious assets are children... and how we mold them in the earlier stages of their life is one of the greatest determining factors to define how they will turn out as adults...

Love our children
For they are the protein of the earth
Enhancing out lives at the inception of birth
Providing this world with universal laughter
Now pause and think of an indescribable disaster

Like spilling some milk or breaking a glass
Or even forgetting to take out the trash
And the prejudices in life, which are so easy to grasp

Instill in their minds, not old scars and sorrow
For the child today is the mind tomorrow

Never give up on their inabilities at first
With the right incentive they will acquire the thirst
The thirst to love, to live, let live and to share
And to prove themselves to the world that they care

Instill in their minds, not old scars and sorrow
For the child today is the mind tomorrow.

Children are the future of the world. (And did any body EVER tell you that with round lens glasses and bendable temples, you'd look so much like Paul Lawrence Dunbar?) I ain't lyin' that's one of my "mostest favoritist poets!"

This is so true, Gillis: "raise your children up in the ways of the Lord, and when they are old they will not depart from it." Our children are born with blank slates upon which we, as parents, write their lives. We must be very careful about what we write. This is an excellent write. Visit me sometime.

So true. I wish all parents could read this, as a reminder.
