    You manage to blow me away, every time. LOVE this. Children's innocence is one of the best things about life.

    This post just tugged at my heartstrings. That's ultimately why I want to teach young children. When I decided to study education, my dad, who was confused why I wouldn't want to teach high school English, said, "I just think it'd be sad to waste your passion for reading and writing- and your sense of humor…" However, my response was similar to your post: kids become jaded young adults. As much as I hate it, it's so true. No one is less inhibited and more accepting than a child. Love a good reminder to live optimistically!

    You do what you can. You live purposefully. Not hopelessly. Love this!

    I think it is so important to not be jaded by the reality of the world. Yes, some people take advantage, some people buy booze with the money you give them. However the act you perform says that there is kindness out there, you can make a difference, and maybe it might not change the person you helped but it might change the person standing next to them that saw it.
