Lantern Walk ~ 30/52 ~

lantern walk

[Joining Bella Cirovic at 52 Photos Project - Week 30:  Illuminate]

last night my son’s grade three class
walked in silence {mostly} to the local retirement home
lanterns glowing

last night my son’s grade three class
sang beautifully to a small group of elderly ladies and gentlemen
lanterns glowing

then each child gently blew out the candle
walked to an elderly lady or gentleman and
offered the lantern as a gift

last night a small group of elderly ladies and gentlemen
filled their hearts with joy
faces glowing

last night my son’s teacher
reached out and bridged a gap between young and old

and we all
young and old
felt a magical sense of
community
acceptance
compassion
