Time for a challenge
I thought I would share with you this lovely poem that was presented to my 17 year old son Jordan on his graduation. Thought it kinda fitted in to the peace theme.
Because of you
Each time a child is born the world changes
When you were born there was a new person for your family to love and care for
And because of you there is one more person who can love and care for others,
Because of you there is one more person who will grow and learn and one more person who can teach others.
Beacuse of you there is one more person to share with
And there is one more person who can share feelings and ideas as well as things.
Because of you there is one more person who needs help and one more person who can help others.When you help, care, share and listen, you are being kind.When two people help, care, share and listen to each other, they are friends.
When people from different countries help, care, share and listen to one another, it is called peace.
Even something as big and important as peace begins with something small and precious.
It might begin....
Because of you.

So there it is. I hope I have inspired you to show me what you've got. Oh, and by the way, I thought I would put together a little Etsy treasury of a selection of the entries. That is also going to be a first for me so I had better get my head around that one!
