Young Concerns (or May Her Tribe Increase)
Heather and I read her science and history lessons together daily. I'm happy to do this rather than have her watch the teaching on DVD like she did last year because we get to stop along the way and talk about the things that interest us... particularly the things that interest her.
Now, as I learn with Heather, I am really quite surprised by the little revelations of what makes her tick.
As it turns out...
Topsoil being washed away breaks Heather's heart. Rain forests felled wantonly make her cry. Loss of wilderness and unchecked development make her angry and/or terribly grief-stricken. Pollution makes her crazy.
I am stunned by this 10 year old's heart for Creation.
I pray blessings and blessings and blessings and hope big hopes that her generation will do so much better than mine.
