Eyes like gems, still uncut, still unpolished, but precious and worthy of careful safekeeping. They have probably been exposed to more than they ought to, but behind every glare lies a glint of innocence so pure and vulnerable they cannot be neglected. These are our children. And even if they have to grow under trying conditions, they’re still up for play, for laughter, and for a chance to be amazed by the simplest thing.
