Over the past several years, my life has been changed.

And now, nearly one year after our national general election for the leader of our nation, the thought that has changed my life, has begun to grow even more apparent.

With regards to that election, one thing that we heard many times from the various politicians that were running for president is a statement that I know we could all recite.

That statement is…

“What kind of world are we going to leave our children?”

In this, we find a core reason for why these politicians are seeking the opportunity to serve. However, for me, this statement has taken on a whole different look and has challenged as a parent.

The only difference is this…

I believe it is time to turn that statement around for it to read like this…

“What kind of children are we going to leave our world?”

Now, I could spend the next several minutes writing about what I mean. But, I don’t think I need to. I think you already know what this means. With that, my only question is this… what does that look like? (in action)

Please join me by sharing what you believe this looks like. Together, we CAN make a difference, we just have to get out of the way sometimes and let the children speak, share, and even lead. For us, hmmm…. slow down long enough to listen?

This happened with me and my own daughter. Click here to see what she started. Friend, what kind of children will we leave our world?

We all have a role and it begins… right now.
