"End war forever." "Make the earth greener." "Please find a job for my daddy." "Make it rain candy." These words were included in a e-book that was presented to Barack Obama on President's Day. It was a worldwide project that allowed kids to make their voices heard, through words and pictures, to the newly elected president. The e-book was a labor of love from the mouths of innocents, yet they had a ring of reality to them -- except for the kid who made the candy comment.
In a sense, though, I think the kid who made the candy comment had a good idea. I wish the president could cause the sky to open up and make it rain candy. If he could do that one act, then all the other wishes could be easily fulfilled. However, we know this is not likely to happen. None of us could do this. But each of us could accomplish the "spirit" of the comment and try to make it rain candy in someone else's life, especially in these hard economic times.
We may not end war forever. The earth may not become greener, and people may still be out of work. But each one of us can demonstrate kindness toward someone who may be going through a difficult time. We have the power to make it rain candy -- every day -- for someone we care about.
