May You Stay Forever Young




PEACE REIGNS IN THE HEART OF A CHILD



Many years ago a wonderful book by Robert Fulgham was published called Everything I Ever Needed To Know I Learned In Kindergarten.



Share everything
Play fair
Don't hit people
Put things back where you found them
Clean up your own mess
Don't take things that aren't yours
Say you are sorry when you hurt somebody
Wash your hands before you eat. Flush.
Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you
Take a nap every afternoon



Live a balanced life. Learn some and think some and draw some and paint and sing and dance and play and work everyday.

Think of what a better world it would be if we all, the whole world, had cookies and milk about 3 o'clock every afternoon and then lay down with our blankets for a nap. Or we had a basic policy in our nation and other nations to always put things back where we found them and clean up our own messes.

And it is still true, no matter how old you are, when you go out in the world, it is best to hold hands and stick together.

I’d like to teach the world to sing
In perfect harmony
I’d like to hold in in my arms and keep it company
I’d like to see the world for once
All standing hand in hand
And hear them echo through the hills
Ah, peace throughout the land.

I agree, pretty much everything we need to know we learned in Kindergarten!!! Too bad we don't always do those things, though, right?? Today we can all change that.

Peace to you!!!

Hey good thoughts there. Its all advice any of us can use. Things should be basic for sure. I think sometimes we forget the important things in life because we are too busy trying to think of what is important!
