One hundred years from now

One hundred years from now,
It will not matter how much money you made,
What kind of car you drove,
What sort of house you lived in.
One hundred years from now,
The world will be a better place,
Because you made a difference in the life of a child.

[Note: this is part of a weekly series Pic and Poem Paired. This is dedicated to my dear Great Auntie Jeanne, who lived this thought every day. Her children, grand children, nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews etc, were all blessed by this special woman that would always get down on the floor to play while all the other adults in the room were doing other things. Here she is showing us that my then 6 month old could sit up on his own despite what his foolish parents thought. This photo was taken at her home in Hayward, CA.]
