CHILD'S HOPE

BEFORE I LEFT HOME @ 12 MN, I HAPPENED TO SEE KYLE ANDREI, MY NIECE 4 YRS OLD, PRAYING.
SHE WAS KNEELING ON BED, HER PALMS TOGETHER, EYES CLOSED.

I BARELY HEARD HER WORDS.

WHEN I GOT NEAR HER SHE DID THE SIGN OF THE CROSS.

AS HER TITO, I AM GLAD TO KNOW SHE LEARNED PRAYING AT NIGHT.

THAT'S D FIRST TIME I SAW HER DID THAT.
AND I WONDER WHAT HER PRAYER WAS ALL ABOUT.
I WONDER.

I THOUGHT MAYBE SHE LEARNED IT FROM MAMA, OR FROM SCHOOL OR FROM A TV SHOW.


I'LL TELL MAMA TO SEE TO IT THAT ANDREI AND LY-AN SAY THEIR PRAYERS AT NIGHT.


I LOVE MY NIECES.

AND I'L TAKE CARE OF THEM IN WAYS I CAN.
