What do we hope to plan and pray for our children and our children’s children?

In general, we are obligated to protect nature so that they do have a future on sustainable earth; but above recycling and physical properties of protecting their environment how would we like our offspring to live?

Current crises of the pandemic and the difficulties of living together in communities that cherish and value all races and all creeds- all of humanity, surely brings this question to the fore.

We are propelled into politics in order to use our voices to each have our say in how and who we wish to manage our resources; how humans must treat other humans who all bleed the same colour blood.

On the birth of my first child, I had a wish that is still true today. I wrote about it then in this poem which is simply titled- Lullaby

For my daughter:


Two eyes

Two ears

Strong, long body

A hope:

May your life be filled with Joy


with love.

Find someone, to care for

who cares, for you

Be happy

have fun


In all, that you do

They are all the plans

And hopes

that I have


and carried

with you.
