Tonight I attended the children's very first choral concert. It was a festive affair. The Boy One wore a blue tie. The Girl One tried desperately to keep her bra from showing over the top of her dress.
There were more children on the stage, in the choir, than in my entire sixth grade. All classes combined. Possibly even in the entire middle school I attended. Sixth through eighth grade.
They looked very, very small on the stage among all those kids.
I do not know how they summon the courage to walk through those huge doors every day. Much less the cheerful way they walk through...the positive attitudes they have.
I admire them more and more every day.
