This past week has been so blue for me. I’m in a place I don’t want to be (story for another time) and I stumbled on a post in one of the teacher groups I belong to on facebook where children with learning differences were being talked down.
Dyslexia being the topic. It was shattering for me and this came up. I can only write and talk about it and hope that someday this world wouldn’t be so cruel to children that need extra and special attention.
I can‘t tell you to stop creating special babies because if I did, it will mean the same thing and life will be boring. We can‘t all be the same. We shouldn’t be. I don‘t know why you create special babies and even babies with learning differences. I don’t even understand Your ways yet but I can do something.
Make our moms and dads special parents with special powers to take in all the loads of beautiful specialness in every one of us.
Give our teachers everywhere extra douses of Patience to deal with our special attitudes.
Give the world your lens that they may see every special child the way You see them, that they may know You made no mistake in specially creating us.
Your Special Sprinkle on Earth
It‘s painful to see ignorance flying around about issues such as this but it’s comforting to know that the awareness is gaining weight.
Let’s do two things.
