Welcome, my little rascal, to the world. You were due on my birthday, but clearly strong-willed from start, you chose instead a day of infamy, a day where you get to challenge notions of hatred and prejudice with the hot-blooded affirmation of life itself. So, now unleashed, go ahead and scream. Howl at this twisted planet. Announce your crimson arrival with lungs full of eager fury.
I wish for you the following: a hopeful heart, always. Music surrounding your every waking moment. An ability to sense the beauty hidden all around you, and that, even when hurt, you never, ever allow bitterness to creep into your heart and take root. A palace befitting your spirit, whether it be with marble or dirt floors. The strength to stand up in the face of apathy and cruelty and set things right again. Above all though, I wish that kindness and love walk with you every step of your precious little life.
I can’t wait to meet you.
