SOMEDAY THEY WILL FLY

” I see children as kites. You spend a lifetime trying to get them off the ground. You run with them until you’re both breathless… they crash…you add a longer tail. You patch and comfort, adjust and teach- and assure them that someday they will fly.

Finally they are airborne, but they need more string, and you keep letting it out… You know it won’t be long before that beautiful creature will snap the lifeline that bound you together and soar- free and alone. Only then you know you did your job.”
