So cute, her face bright with innocence, she pulled at my hand begging to show me something special, we did not speak the same language but we shared an understanding.
Her short brown hair, her cheeky grin, I saw me, the little girl with boundless energy.
We were visiting one of the prevention homes, places where children come if they are at risk of being forced into slavery and sexual exploitation.
This beautiful angel was protected from such evil, praise God for that.
Her eyes so alive, her heart so undamaged.
We sat on a blanket in the sun and she began creating me a feast of plastic food.
My heart rejoiced as I covered my pretend pizza in imaginary tomato sauce.
This was so pure and right, a child free to be a child.
This beautiful girl has become my motivation, my inspiration.
I want to do my part to see children run in fields of freedom, to protect and nurture innocence.
I pray with all my heart that I always do my part.
