Writing is an adventure. To begin with, it is a toy and an amusement. Then it becomes a mistress, then it becomes a master, then it becomes a tyrant. The last phase is that just as you are about to be reconciled to your servitude, you kill the monster and fling him to the public.

— Winston Churchill

My Silly Dream

plwishfulthinkingI have a silly dream. I blow out candles every year and make a silly wish. I read newspaper headlines and allow myself silly fantasies. I dream and wish and fantasize about a world where children are safe.

What would it take to identify monsters before they hurt a child instead of after the damage is done? Couldn’t we stop children from dying at the hands of their parents and caregivers if in fact we looked a little harder? Isn’t there a way to help people see that parenting is an honor and that children are jewels?

I told you it was a silly dream.
