when i saw this beautiful and delightful sight at the protest, i felt my heart leap with hope. here was this small child barely able to carry this sign that towered over her small frame. but was she determined! i watched as she would nearly drop it and then push it back up to try and lift it high.
when i heard about the ugly and horrific way that some of the children at the protest were peppersprayed i thought about this little girl and her big message, her large sign and her huge heart.
i wondered how anyone could be so small minded, have so narrow a vision and such microscopic thinking that they would deliberately chose to violate the innocence of the children who are the voice of tomorrow.
