Truth of Innocence

I can specifically remember when I took this shot this weekend that it captured the purest form of innocence. She is 3 1/2, she knows nothing of hate, she will play with anybody regardless of what they look like, she shares with others, and she is truly trusting.  Her world problems consist of a rain storm preventing a day outside and an at times pesky brother.  She has the world at her hands and can do anything she wants, be anybody she wants to be, and go anywhere she wants to.  This is the age of believing in everything and knowing nothing- it's pretty precious to think that way isn't it.  I have to hope that she can hold on to some of this and maybe that we can each get a little of it back.
