through the eyes of a child

21May12

do you remember being small? five, six, seven, ten. it was so easy to make friends then. you went to the pool, and met another little girl there who was about your age.

instant friendship. two girls holding hands

you didn’t have to have anything in common. black or white, big or small, regardless of what brand of clothing you wore, it didn’t matter. to a child, every other child is just a potential new friend.

after you leave the pool, you might have never seen your new friend again. you didn’t get her phone number or facebook name, but that didn’t matter. what mattered was that you had fun with her when you were there, in the moment.

if adults thought more like children, i think we would all be a lot happier, and the world would be linked in a way google+ would envy.

    [ Smiles ] Your post was very touching. I agree with your concept.

    I believe that people gradually learn to become biased when they get older.

    If you put a black child with a white child, they will get along well.

    Racism and discrimination are learned behaviours.

    By the way, you have a nice blog!

    I would like to wish you and your regular readers a wonderful week.

    • Thank you so much for your kind comments! I agree about the race issue, but really it is so much more – children do not understand the petty ‘rules’ of society, and therefore don’t follow them!
