Have you ever watched

3 or 4 year old children playing

on the playground?

How they seem to be blind when it

comes to certain things

The don't seem to care about the

color of each other's skin,

the texture of the hair or even

the shape of their playmate's

nose


It doesn't matter to them how big

or small of a house they live in

or the neighborhood in which they

live

For all they see is another child

equal in every way


Perhaps we as adults can learn

from them

For maybe they don't see each

other with their eyes

Could it be that they see with

their hearts?

Wise words - so true.
Let children rule and the world might become a better one.
Try to look with your heart. Love that statement

I agree with every comment above. This is true revelation, if adults could see with their hearts like children,, what a great place the earth would be to live!! This is special, GM.

Reviewed by Ted Sheridan (Reader) 8/11/2003
It is highly possible, but in the real world, because of the fight for power, people must be stepped on to obtain what others want. Utopia is a perfect place, it just does not exist in this lifetime. Thank you for allowing me to pretend it does for a second, you are as eloquent as ever with this write.

This is exceptional, my friend.
The innocence of a child is
profound. I have often watched
them at play also...and marveled
at their complete acceptance of
each other...I wish we could all
stay in a childs world...:)
Loved this so much
