The innocent voices of our children

This afternoon was my daughter’s end of year show at school.

The unity and innocence of their young voices singing was so healing, so inspiring. This group of children sounded like an army as they stood together.

As the Baron says in The Sound of Music, “Is there a more beautiful expression of what is good in this country of ours than the innocent voices of our children?”

We give ourselves such a hard time as parents, we feel guilty a lot, are we doing too much of that, not enough of this?

But today, to get this simple gift of validation and hope, I just had to show up.
