This is a bit long...9 minutes or so but well worth the time.  In particular, I might want to take the girl with the freckles home!

“Life they say, can turn on a dime. And in a world that constantly shifts beneath our feet, the only thing we can know for certain is how we feel, the love we have, the fear we hide from, the pain we push away. Give it a voice, and the rewards are piece of mind and a peaceful heart.”

I saw this earlier, and was thinking the same about that little girl. She's 8, maybe, but incredibly intelligent. Her parents must be proud!

They were all darling., but she stood out!  They absolutely should all be proud.  I hope more parents are raising children this way!

I have to admit feeling encouraged by these kids. You know, that maybe our future is bright after all. I mean, my heart breaks when I hear racist/sexist comments, but then to hear the children of our future react so passionately about this obvious injustice, it makes me believe that maybe the world that my children will experience CAN be a better one than we're living now.

here's  to our future - may many more parents raise their children to see - and fight - these acts of discrimination.

 The girl who cried at the end had me in tears, my daughter said I'm glad someone understands that the things said were really hurtful...

The blonde boy was adorable

The one boy who looks bi-racial is also adorable and both him and the blonde boy with the puzzled looks were so cute

That girl has a modeling career in her future.  Simply gorgeous...all of them, from the inside out!

I loved when they were asked if they knew what was wrong with the parents, and they all fought so hard to have the correct answer; yet none of them knew what was wrong!

I was waiting for one of the kids to say something like...Daddy is laying down when he should be up! lol
