A straight A student.
Someone who can belt out a tune.
A lover of theatre.
A watcher of Stranger Things and Riverdale.
Someone with a mind that absorbs and holds onto facts. For example, if you ask him what country is south of Ethiopia, he’ll say, “Oh, that’s easy: Kenya.”
An excellent public speaker.
Someone who will grow up to make this world a better place. Based on his current aspirations, he might help to solve a murder of your loved one or unravel the mystery of those ancient bones found in your backyard. Or, he might make a film that allows you to forget your troubles for a couple hours. Or, he might become the lawyer who helps get you out of a bind.
A future voter.
Someone with family members and friends who are willing to walk barefoot over barbed wire in order to vote for people who stand up to ignorance and fear, who protect the innocent, and who embrace all of America rather than only a small sliver of it.
They can ban words, but they can’t ban my love.
