Hearing the sounds now of children playing and laughing from the nearby elementary school. Innocence. Soon they will be filled with knowledge, most of it useless, and beaten down with responsibility, forced to grow up in a world not of their making; one if you believe the pessimists is growing more cold and cruel with each passing day. These days by the time most get to middle school, they are already scaled down adults filled with stress and/or trying to live up to somebody’s idea of contrived expectations. The least we can do is respect the Dao and try to make the world a better place for them.
