Pen and Paper







Jennie, what you wrote is so incredible and should hang on every teachers wall and written in stone on every school building! This is everything a child needs to know while in elementary school, high school, and college and it would be nice in the work place too. Perhaps people would not grow up to be mean to their own children by taking out all their pent up anger from not receiving love and kindness from their parents and the cycle goes on…. Why is it that so many religions focus on hell and damnation? They should focus on love, kindness, joy, with lots of hugs and that everyone should be good to each other. Love doesn’t care if you are rich or poor. Hate is a thief, that steals our humanity and creates all fear that is a destroyer of love.
