Something Beautiful

As I watched my children play,

I was struck by what it means to be child-like.

Despite the awkward language barriers;

Despite the obvious age differences;

They played.

They laughed.

They used hand motions and what little words they knew

To communicate;

To create a game played together.

Put 10 children in one room from different parts of the world,

With no pretenses;

 Nothing planned;

See what happens.

Chances are,

Something beautiful will happen.
