The light was fading quickly.

The trees starting to sparkle behind the kiddos watching eyes.

The smell of buttered popcorn and earth mingling.

Crickets singing louder and louder as the sun sinks away.

My family settled in for a movie in our backyard.

A movie with a brilliant message:

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
Nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”

-Dr. Seuss, The Lorax

A magic message.

It’s time to care a whole awful lot.

It’s time that change creates growth and life.

No more past.

No more regret.

No more death.
