I think of all the violence in the world. The children that never get a chance to live up to their potential. As I painted this picture it made me sad. I hope for so much for children today. Addiction, poverty and so much anger cannot be all there is in store for them. There has to be more. I do not have the solution for this complicated issue, but I know we must try. We must instill in children that they are loved and the importance of an education. To know that work and being responsible for they actions is part of being an adult. We all must live up to our potential and use the talents we are blessed with.
I want our children to succeed. I have hope.
