They are sick but their hearts are happy.

They may cry but their presence makes you smile.

They may be tiny but their desire to be loved equals infinity.

They may require nourishment but they exude resilience.


They have the stamp of approval from the Creator.

They require affection like a bear that cuddles with her cubs.

Their soul may be compromised if not given the right ingredients for maturity.

Their antibodies will not be capable of defending against all the evils of the world.


We must exercise their muscles of joy, compassion, and integrity.

We must strengthen their bones of responsibility, faith, and obedience.

We must encourage them to dream beyond their imagination.

We must admonish them to explore life.


One day they will stop crawling along the sands of the Sahara.

One day they will be leaders of many nations.

One day they will institute change.

One day these young souls will rejoice and their Creator will say, job well done.
