And, shouldn’t that be a goal for each of us? I desperately seek to instill in my own daughters the love of reading and the thrill of being able to grasp knowledge. I insist they complete their homework, and offer them all the love and support any child would ever need. And, as parents, we strive to make them responsible for the actions.
I realize however that all children don’t have the same opportunities afforded to others. Some may have a Mrs. Boyd in their classroom, but no support at home.
But none of us should ever pass on an opportunity to help a child. Our children are the future, and our community will soon reap what we are sowing.
