Sometimes, I look at all the little people in my life—my kids, their friends, the children we meet every day—and I imagine who will be the next president, the next Picasso, or the next Einstein. I wonder what amazing things they are going to accomplish. They could write the next Pulitzer prize winning novel, receive the Nobel peace prize, or save someone's life. The possibilities are endless.
I think it's important to do good things when we can and to teach our children that we can, and do, make a difference.
That's why I'm smitten with designer and illustrator Erin Jang's print of Simple Virtues that she created to benefit cancer research. Not only are the sentiments wonderful, but the execution is perfect. (Of course, everything she creates pretty much is!) And the cause is one near and dear to my heart.
