i bless all the children in the world today
I take this day to recognize the beauty of children and our responsibility toward them. Their beauty, their sweetness, their vulnerability, their love - may their needs as well as their preciousness be foremost in my mind.
May I not forget the relative powerlessness of children to represent their needs as the world goes on around them. Those who have no families to care for them, to nourish them, to love and sustain them are the responsibility of all of us, May I never be blind to either their beauty or their needs.
Please bless the children of the world.
May their tender emanations
Awaken the heart of all adults.
May their needs be moved
To the forefront of our consciousness
And the world reorient itself around them.
