“MOST OF US, I BELIEVE, ADMIRE STRENGTH. IT’S SOMETHING WE TEND TO RESPECT IN OTHERS, DESIRE FOR OURSELVES, AND WISH FOR OUR CHILDREN. SOMETIMES THOUGH, I WONDER IF WE CONFUSE STRENGTH AND OTHER WORDS–LIKE AGGRESSION AND EVEN VIOLENCE. REAL STRENGTH IS NEITHER MALE NOR FEMALE; BUT IS, QUITE SIMPLY, ONE OF THE FINEST CHARACTERISTICS THAT ANY HUMAN BEING CAN POSSESS.”
Mr. Rogers always says it perfectly. This is so fitting in this world of ours today where there are so many bad things happening everywhere.
I wish this for my daughter more than anything. I want her to know real strength. I want her to know that real courage is being brave and doing the right thing. I want her to know kindness and to be kind to all people. And above all love.
