As the sun sets here in America, America will blow out its candles with all the grandeur and hoopla of a toddler.
Because America, as we know it, is a child. An infant in the broader sense; Ignoring the the wisdom of its native elders and its cousins across the sea.
Because children make mistakes, children must be nurtured to learn and grow. Turning your back on a child is like turning your back on the ocean. Stupid. Don’t do it.
For every two steps forward children always manage to take a few steps back. But they get there. With love and guidance, children get there.
America is a child. It needs love and guidance to grow.
It will take all of us to to guide it right.
From one parent to another.
Happy 4th, Amy
