Love Thursday

Stars and Stripes in the sun

Today like millions of other Americans
I went to work. I didn’t design a beautiful skyscraper,
I didn’t write a proposal to save an endangered species,
And I didn’t drive a bus or fly a plane,
Or write a crucial bill that would someday become a law.


However, I did spend time with some very important people.
I read a story to an attorney,
I sang the alphabet song with a Supreme Court Justice.
I ate lunch with a pastor,
And patted the back of an engineer,
Taught a policeman how to zip his jacket,

And introduced an astronaut to the color red.

Tomorrow, who knows whom I’ll meet,
But one thing is for sure…
They will be very
important
For they are our precious children,
And the hope of our very future.

What we do
is what
the red, white and blue
will do tomorrow,
be there.
