Looking Through the Eyes of a Child

Have you ever noticed that expression children have when they uncover an act of kindness, of pure love, of empathy, and of true beauty? It’s their tendency to be subdued by it, as their eyes twinkle with merriment and wonder, and their faces glow with pure joy. Everything they exhibit is raw and real. It is not those thick masks the adults wear frequently to camouflage as an item in society. Nor is it a product of our “cultured” and “cultivated” sense of preference that is too well trained to abide to specific norms. No… Soon, beneath that aging intelligence, we will realize that we cannot see as clearly as we should. Then we’ll know that they hold the power to see everything as it is - untainted and true.
