                   Haver you ever just stopped and watched children as they play?  In their world they are flying high in the sky ridding on dragons breathing fire across the sky, they are chasing purple bunnies with white cotton tales across beautiful meadows, and they are chasing fairies dancing across the land. Laughing and running, not thinking about the cares of tomorrow or the plans of the future.  If you look through their eyes you can see the brilliant blue of the sky and the vivid colors of the rainbow.  They are enjoying the moment in the world thy created. In their world they are happy. Sometimes it takes the imagination of a child to teach us to slow down and enjoy life and that there are no limits to what we can achieve if we have the imagination of a child.

Through A Childs Eyes

                              It seems like every time you see the news there is another act of violence or a suicide. seventy-five percent is because of bullying. Wouldn't it be nice if we could go back to the days of our childhood when things seemed less complicated? Back before the internet, before our lives were all over social media, before strangers that did not know you would make hateful comments about you. Sometimes we never know who we might be influencing. I hope that if anyone is ever influenced by my actions or words that it would be positive not negative. That they might be the next world leader or a doctor or even a wonderful teacher, not a bully or someone who thinks they are unworthy. I always loved books, but my love of writing came years later. I don't remember what grade or the teacher, we had to write a story and when we got our papers back, she had written on it "good enough for a series ".
