it took a small village of kinders to make a man.
they hiked through the deep snow.
they went in the playhouse to eat some snow and get pumped up about it.
they worked hard to push heavy loads almost a big as they were.
they built. and they built.
and they moved mountains.
and they crowned him with a prized possession.
and we celebrated with a song and a dance around the man they created.
and in the seventh hour, they rested.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world;
indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.
