A 'Wee Folks' New Year's Eve.
It is a quiet and gentle New Year's Eve. The glowing candles and the colourful lights create the perfect setting for a perfect evening.
I sit and I marvel at the joy on the faces of the 'wee folks'. I watch them so happy in their carefree world. They are good and they are kind. No judgement is passed, no stigma attached. The wee folks live in peace, sweet peace and contentment. They wish for the world of us bigger folks to be more like theirs. If only.
Let our legacy be to future generations, that it all stops now. An end to bigotry, an end to the indifference to the plight of others. Let us leave our precious, fragile planet a kinder, caring, more peaceful place for our children and, in turn, for their children.
I sit here and I sense a new optimism for the dawning of a new decade. I believe there are people who embrace a beginning of a fresh, vibrant and most positive reality. We can make it so.
The wee folks wish us all a peaceful and positive 2010.
