We are All One Family
And we are all connected.
Family Love knows no bounds
It does not choose to love by race, colour or creed
Nor does it choose one family over another.
It holds no prejudices
Nor does it have favourites.
It does not separate, nor does it harm.
It is not cruel or unkind
And is not quick to chastise, judge or dismiss.
It is an all-encompassing, natural Love that stretches out to us all.
If we stop for a moment, we can see it every day, for it is all around us…
In the smile of a stranger
And the bright eyes of the young.
In the gentle touch of a friend
And the tender warmth of a mother
It forms the Strong Foundation upon which we Grow and Learn
That Family Love is for All
For this Love lies deep within the Heart of Everyone we meet.
