Children see magic because they look for it.
~ Christopher Moore, Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ’s Childhood Pal
Prayer and reflection of hope for children
I pray of a world
where the youth are free,
Free to play with each other
Free to touch, tickle and to embrace,
Free to be themselves
and respected for that.
I pray for a world
here the young blossom,
Where potential is harnessed
Where people’s efforts are rewarded,
And where one can fly to reach the sky.
I pray for a world without HIV/AIDS,
I dream of a kaleidoscope of youth,
Who sing a song of praise
and not shed tears,
I dream of the fullness of life
and no more death.
