Children are the brightest treasures we bring forth into this world, but too large a percentage of the population continues to treat them as inconveniences and nuisances, when they’re not treating them as possessions or toys. –Charles De Lint, The Onion Girl
It’s 7: 29 PM on day 315 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself hotdog for breakfast, tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign – no luck – feed myself rice and curry for lunch, tweet about my campaign some more–still no luck – read Sablog: a “blog” by Sabrina, age 6 on Love That Max – a charming post about life through the eyes of a six-year-old –watch TV, feed myself sweet potato and plain yoghurt for dinner, brush my teeth once more and watch some more TV.
Yesterday my mom was talking to my brother about something and she said you must try to be perfect to which he responded we’re not made to be perfect otherwise what’s the point and in that moment I felt the truth of his statement because I had always believed that perfection was an illusion and that we should measure our worth not by the things we have but rather by the things we do. Has a child in your life ever said something that made you see God in them if only for a moment?

Stan’s very sweet for saying so, but feel free to write what reflects you best.
Thanks to all my friends out there who are helping me make my dream come true: to make a better world for all of us!
