after finding a tiny baby mole
who has died
along the side of the road
the kids say a few words on its behalf
and place it in the soft leaves of the woods
as a kind and gentle memorial gesture.
“when children come into contact with nature, they reveal their strength.”
“the most important thing on earth is for all of us to make this sentence true:
compassion is what people do.”

“a gentle heart is tied with an easy thread.”
the kinders made a wonderful house for rocket the turtle,

“until he extends his circle of compassion to include all living things,
man will not himself find peace.”
“people fail to get along because they fear each other;
they fear each other because they don’t know each other;
they don’t know each other
because they have not communicated with each other.”
