Happy Kind Kid’s Day!


Dear Kind Kid,

Not to put a drag on your special day, but I am worried, concerned and still fretting about a conversation we had in my car years ago about power and having power.  

I am not sure you remember, because you were so young.  

I am not sure I said the right words then and I am not sure I am writing the right words now.  

I could lecture you about power and ignorant power trips, but I have a feeling you know more about this subject than I do now. 

I will just say that power is not wisdom or understanding, and it is definitely not happiness. 

I wish you to live a full life, full of wonder and happiness, and the pursuit of the kind of happiness that only comes from love and peace, kindness and consideration in service of the world, humanity and the Lord. 

Happy Kind Kid’s Day!
