I wish that I could tell you that the world you will grow up in will be a safe one. I wish that I could say this, but I can't. There is uncertainty, hate and greed and it is fueling the bad. One day good will over come evil but I cannot say for certain it will happen in this life time. I wish that I could secure that future for you. One that would be full of peace. No worries about the violence happening everywhere. No worries about bullies of all kinds. No worries about being hated because of your religion, where you are from or what you chose to do with your life. I wish I could say the future will be easy to grow up in, but I can't promise you that. And that statement saddens my heart to the core.
What I can say is that I will teach you love and tolerance. I will teach you the value of a life and how fragile it is. I will teach you that you can have a positive impact on this world. I will seek out the good and beautiful and hope you do the same. I will teach you about the super heroes you love so much. The real ones. Like your God Father Justin. He is doing what he can so that you and the rest of the children of the world hopefully one day don't have to worry. He is the real super hero.
You have so much innocence in your eyes and in your soul. I wish I could keep it this way forever, to shield you from all of the bad things happening in the world you are growing up in. But I know that one day I will have to face reality and your eyes will fall witness to all of the hate. And all I can do is hope that it will not taint all of the good in you.
So for now I will keep you little, keep you innocent, keep you safe and close to me.
Your REAL super hero will do what he can to keep you safe.
Right now you don't have to worry. And maybe one day, I pray, all of the children of the world including you can be promised a safe future.
