"Beautiful" by Danya (age 17)

When our kids actually start expressing their feelings in creative ways, we know they feel safe.
Creativity can not thrive in fear.
Check out this beautiful poem that Danya (age 17) shared with us:

We all have beautiful souls.
We all come from different backgrounds and we all have different futures.
While we are here, let's make this time beautiful.

We come in different shapes and sizes. 
We come in different shades of color...
but one thing about us,
we are beautiful.

We have unique stories; however,
that's what makes us beautiful.

Our past should not determine our future.
All of us have experienced trauma in our life; but, that didn't break us.

Times like this makes it a moment to cherish.
People are coming and going; but, their time here has left a beautiful imprint. 
Let's continue to strive while looking beautiful at a precious moment like this.
