We see each other often. I pass you on the sidewalk, park beside you in the afternoon, sit next to you at an assembly. We may seem different. Caught up in our own worlds each with its own set of responsibilities. But today we are the same.
Today we are all the same. We woke up a little earlier (maybe set an alarm for the first time in months). We made breakfast (just a little more special than usual) and packed lunches. We combed hair and brushed teeth. We zipped up back packs and helped tie shoes. And we held hands as we walked down sidewalks with excited little hearts headed into a new adventure. We kissed cheeks, gave pep talks and then we watched them walk away....all of us hoping for the very best.
We walk away too. Go our own separate ways. But we are not so different you and I. Today we are the same.
