God Bless the Little Children and Tweak Our Nation

I have a little shelf where all of my childhood blue willow
dishes live.  I remember playing so carefully with these little
dishes.  Never wanting them to get chipped or to break.

We always want to protect the things we love ...
the ones we love.

Sometimes we can't.

And the little ones are taken away from us.

And our hearts are never the same.
I pray that our nation will both heal and change.  That we
will remember to treat each other the way we wish to be treated.
That we regain our civility and leave the violence behind.
Imagine a world without hate.  Without cruelty. 
We have the ability to make that happen.

Wouldn't it be nice if everyone was like Bentley?
He loves everyone!

Susan and Bentley
