The Future Over Coffee
At one point, I said, half- joking "If all the moms in the world were able to have a voice for our future, we'd fix a lot of global problems!" But part of me abstractly finds truth in that.
Parents in general, have a greater need than making their point or following an ideal, they have children that will one day inherit this Earth, this Government, this Lifestyle. Regardless of the differing political parties, I hope and pray that my children will inherit a sustainable Earth, a free Government, an upstanding Lifestyle.
It's easy to have images from the books 1984 or A Brave New World haunt me when I think about the future. Sometimes I feel hopelessly out of control. But something that dawned on me just this morning, is that as a parent, I have an edge into helping better the future- I can raise awesome kids to become amazing adults and leaders!
