My daughter loves to write. She gets that from her Mama.
She keeps a notepad and a journal. She gets that from her Mama, too.
But her smarts, she gets that from both her Mama and her Papa.
Tonight, I found this statement in her notepad:
What does a person need?
People need food.
People need drinks.
People need clothes.
People need a home.
After reading this, I thought about all the children out there who are hungry, thirsty, cold, and homeless. I feel an urge to go out tomorrow and do something to make some kids happy. All from a seven-year-old's notepad.
Man, if she can inspire me now at age seven, I can't wait to see what she comes up with as she grows and learns more about using writing as a form of persuasiveness. Look out, Newsweek. My daughter is going to be your future staff journalist.
