The small things

The small things add up….at least, I like to believe they do.

Let girls build. They can still wear pink (or blue) AND build, design, construct, and supervise.

Let boys cook. They can still wear blue (or pink) AND cook, create, share, and nourish.

Let everyone forget about nationalities and races. They can still love their country and heritage AND love others, too.

Let us all explore. Let us all be kind. Let us all remember what it was like to be a child and not know what stereotypes were supposed to fence us in. Let us all not be afraid of things that don’t match our programming. Let us eliminate the programming.

And now, for nothing revolutionary but teeny tributes to the small things…

 

We could go on, and I hope that we do  know that we will. Bit by bit, we go. Poco a poco.
