“For You, Our Child”
This is for all the students who are returning to school, and their parents. I hope you like it!
You are the child of our love and the vision in our dreams. You are curious, strong and beautiful, and filled with such potential. We long to see you when we are old: to know the places you have seen; to know the wisdom you have known; to see the changes life has made in you, and the changes you have made in a world in need of so much change.
We have no words of wisdom, for those must come from you. But have a dream and have a vision and speak to yourself, often and calm, and trust in the words you say to yourself in quiet reflection, and let them inspire your passion, your strength, your wisdom, your fire. We love you now and always will, and we pray there are moments, when you are still, that we come to you in your mind and comfort you and slow your hurried ways.
And we wish someday you will come to us when we are old and tell us great things you have done, and tell us the memories you have made that will comfort you in the quiet moments of your later days, as we find comfort and pride in thoughts and memories of you.
