a little child shall lead them

Just spent an inspiring morning at a fundraiser performance of the Children's Theatre Company of Boston for victims of Hurricane Katrina. It touched my heart to see these kids using the arts to take on issues of social justice, prejudice, and the need for them to become moral leaders in the world. The children were funny, heartwarming and bold in their presentation and already seem to grasp elements of a fundamental change of consciousness which is the aim of the Baha'i Revelation, a consciousness of the oneness of humankind. This deceptively simple understanding of reality is something these children are not only internalizing but putting into practice, something many adults including many of our so called leaders fail to do. Check out the Children's Theatre Company website www.childrenstheatercompany.org and learn more about this wonderful effort at changing the world.
