A child sees a puddle as an ocean. A place where they can splash and sing and get wet.
A child sees a tree as a person. A person that thinks, feels and bleeds when cut. A tree bleeds too.
A child sees a river as a thing that goes. Not a thing that goes somewhere, it just goes. It’s like an adventure.
A child sees a mountain as a mountain. They don’t explain it with fault lines and glaciers. It just Is, and they leave it at that.
Some children see starvation as a part of life. They eat when they can and just keep living because they can’t do anything else.
A child sees a life as precious. A child Never sees suicide as an option. They live and laugh and never consider not living.









A life IS a life and it is precious.
And Please Never Think Your Life Is Any Different
