OK ---- I could give all sorts of excuses, but they all would be just that ---excuses. There is NO good reason why I have not posted since November. It is not as if there weren't plenty of opportunities to witness kids DOING what is RIGHT, or being COURAGEOUS. I am also sure many fabulous folks were out there teaching our kids about INTEGRITY. But what kick-started me in the direction of this blog again was seeing my wonderful five year old grand-daughter wearing a T-shirt that said in big, fat pink letters "BE NICE"!
I want a shirt that says that! I want to start a new blog called BE NICE dot COM! I want it to get a million hits an hour. I want people lined up to buy those shirts like they line up to buy tickets to The Hunger Games!
OR ...... I would settle for none of that as long as our kids and grandkids could start seeing everyone around them simply being NICE. What would it take? I wonder.
