Pass this way…

December 19, 2012

I expect to pass through life but once.  If therefore, there be any kindness I can show, or any good thing I can do to any fellow being, let me do it now, and not defer or neglect it, as I shall not pass this way again.  ~ William Penn

For the Children

Let us have a heart

For children everywhere.

A mind to think

On their behalf,

With love and sacrifice.


To touch,

To do,

To create the evidence

Of our love

And their worth.

Paulann C. Canty, December 19, 2012

Have a heart that never hardens, and a temper that never tires, and a touch that never hurts.  ~ Charles Dickens

    Paulann… The saying by William Penn was framed and hung in our home and I probably read it every day as I grew up in Corpus. Your poem is beautiful. Thank you for your dedication to your life long mission to help those in need.

      Thank you for your kind response. We could all stand to begin and end each day thinking and acting on Penn’s words.
