This past week, I have spent many hours at a children’s hospital with my child, who was hospitalized. During our stay I felt the need many times for fresh air and sunshine and explored the hospital grounds. I spent some time outside of the hospital building wandering around and came across some truly magnificent art work displayed on a fence around a construction area of a new addition to the hospital. I share this art work due to the fact that this art work is the inspiration of children artists done by students from local schools as well as possible patients of the hospital.
What I found impressive was the time spent by the individual artists as well as their particular expression of sending message of “HOPE”, out into the ethers of the city of Fort Worth, Texas as well as the world at large, for all children.
Each piece of art work is a true inspiration not just for children but as well for adults. The art work is the work of children from several elementary, middle schools as well as a few high schools within Tarrant County. The art work has a message that has need to be shared. I am proud of the children whom shared a part of their time within life to open the eyes of others to what is vital and important within life. Each life, each soul, each spirit is vital here within of our world called earth.
Never should one be taken for granted no matter what the age of a human spirit is at any point in time. As a soul, we are not a number but a human being with a divine purpose to enrich the world around us. Markedly, we see that life is diminished before our eyes daily. Let us get back to the value of valuing each soul that we are gifted within our life and no longer consider a soul a number for a soul of a being is a human being that is precious and a gifting to the world at large . Each one of us matters greatly within the moments of now as well as the future.
