Different Children

This evening, on the anniversary of my father's death and in deference to him, I want to celebrate children who are different. This is a poem by Digby Wolfe 

Here's to the kids who are different;

The kids who don't always get A's.

The kids who have ears twice the size of their peers,

And noses that go on for days....


Here's to the kids who are different,

The kids they call crazy or dumb,

The kids who don't fit in, with the guts and the grit,

Who dance to the beat of a different drum....


Here's to the kids who are different,

The kids with the mischievous streak,

For when they have grown, as history's shown,

Its their difference that makes them unique.

                                                                                                                         author Digby Wolfe


 Also, in celebration of my good friend, Roxanne, I want to share her recent accomplishment. Congratulations, Rox
