Child-like Wonder:

Remember being a child and seeing snow for the first time, feeling the texture of a rock, the coolness of running water in a stream, or listening to the sound of the wind in the trees?  That is what "child-like wonder" is all about.
Last Wednesday I watched as Sarah White's 15-month-old grandson climbed to the top of a 65 million year old tree stump.  It was a moment of exploration, discovery, excitement..."child-like wonder". 

The tree will soon be lost to the blasting and mining of coal near Burnham, NM.  What will our children 7 generations from now have to experience for their "child-like wonder"?  I wonder...

be strong, be safe, Carlan
