My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
Your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can hold,
And while you’re out there getting where you’re getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
Yeah, this, is my wish.
~ Rascal Flatts ~
Children have a way of bringing out many of our strongest human emotions and feelings. These emotions range from pride to worry, happiness to sadness, hopes to fears, satisfaction to tension, and agitation to frustration. As adults, we nurture the children and give them words of praise and encouragement. We take much pride in their endeavors, accomplishments and achievements.
Long before Clay Aiken performed on American Idol, he worked with children and tried to make their lives just a bit better. Today, Clay continues to work for the rights of all children though out the world. He helps them “know somebody loves them.”
The following are quotes from Clay’s book, Learning To Sing…Hearing The Music in Your Life
“I’m often asked what I would do to change the world if I had the power to do anything.
In my ideal world, no child would suffer. Charitable instincts would prevail. Those who could give would give.
There would be global acceptance of all different types of people. “
“There are so many kids in this world who could use another person looking out for them…Someone who will help them to discover their strengths and rise above their weaknesses…Someone who offers another opinion of their worth.
Why not me?”
This is my wish
I hope you know somebody loves you!
