|The littlest ones will always need a |
Our vision for the future is entirely entwined with our children, the children of the world. Think of what we can teach them. What can we show them, both beautiful and inspiring, and not so beautiful but hopefully inspiring in a different way? All parents know you cannot force a toddler or a teenager to comply with our every wish, but what we can do is gently and patiently open their eyes to their potential and guide them on a 2020 path of clear sight to improve our world and make a positive difference. It’s just one year, concentrating not on ourselves, but having a greater vision and understanding that as one person, we can truly make a difference. Maybe it will become a new habit.
|Some contacts don't need masks.|
|Maybe our new exposure to such places |
will increase our desire to preserve
and protect them
So, my hope for 2021 is that we have learned from 2020 insights. We have learned the importance of people and services that are truly essential. We need to trust science in matters of health, and environment. We will never take for granted a hug, a handshake or even a smile. We have come to know our outdoor havens and how good nature is for the soul. Let’s please resolve to keep other important things in our vision for 2021 to remain safe and grateful for the good in the world.
Wishing a Happy, Healthy New Year to all. Beth

things will be a lot better.
