'The open haert is the love and faithful thing in your body. You must have love in your haert  to trust others and thell trust you back.This information is about love in you and your friends where ever you are. The round red thing is in every person to help them live.
The soul, which is you, is protected by an invisidel  bubble, like us today. Our heart is very personl to us.people may think our haert is in our tummy, but it is in your chest.'


The above was written by my granddaughter, and she wrote this back in the spring. It wasn't written as a lesson, although they had clearly had one at school. I have copied it verbatim, because it shows that words are stronger than the rules which surround them.

She is seven years old now, but was six at the time. It still makes me weep each time I read it, the innocence of the words are a lesson to us all, as we rush about our daily lives, caught up in the hustle and bustle.

'The open haert is the love and faithful thing in your body.'

I defy any philosopher to gainsay it. Innocent yes, but by heaven couldn't we all do with a dose of such innocence?

'you must have love in your haert to trust others and thell trust you back.'

 It shouts at us, these phases which trip off our tongues so glibly, yet get thrust aside in the hustle of everyday life.

Will she be a writer?  I have no idea - at her age the whole world is before her, but she is undeniably a thinker, and her words make us all stop and think.
