Anyone can slay a dragon, he told me, but try waking up every morning & loving the world all over again. That's what takes a real hero.
Most people don't know there are angels whose only job is to make sure you don't get too comfortable & fall asleep & miss your life.
I hope it will be said we taught them to stand tall & proud, even in the face of history & the future was made new & whole for us all, one child at a time.
In my dream, the angel shrugged & said, If we fail this time, it will be a failure of imagination & then she placed the world gently in the palm of my hand.
I had a teacher once who said the greatest mystery of the universe was her husband & after that I could never understand why we wasted so much time on things like the cure for cancer or putting a man on the moon when we could just have all those scientists working on him.
