P.S. 22 hits it out of the park again. This time with Matisyahu's One Day:
sometimes I lay
under the moon
and thank God I'm breathing
then I pray
don't take me soon
cause I am here for a reason
sometimes in my tears I drown
but I never let it get me down
so when negativity surrounds
I know some day it'll all turn around
all my life I've been waiting for
I've been praying for
for the people to say
that we don't wanna fight no more
they'll be no more wars
and our children will play
"And our children will play." Exactly. If we teach our children to spend time playing and not tolerate them putting each other down, it will be One Day to celebrate.
We can only start one home at a time. As a parent if you have the expectation that your child will be kind to others, it's one more in a classroom that changes the balance from mean spirited to just plain spirited.
It just takes ONE...and then one more...and then one more....
