At This Moment: Let Them Be Little

Part of education is allowing our youngsters to discover, wonder and find joy. When adults use education to further their dysfunctional ideologies, children lose innocence. Children lose the chance to develop a natural moral excellence and a love for beauty and goodness. They lose the fleeting magic of just being able to be little.

Let Them Be Little

I can remember when you fit in the palm of my hand.
Felt so good in it, no bigger than a minute.
How it amazes me, you’re changing with every blink.
Faster than a flower blooms they grow up all too soon.

So let them be little, cause they’re only that way for a while.
Give them hope, give them praise, give them love, every day.
Let em cry, let em giggle, let them sleep in the middle.
Oh, just let them be little

I’ve never felt so much in one little tender touch.
I live for those kisses, prayers and your wishes.
Now that you’re teaching me things only a child can see.
Every night while we’re on our knees all I ask is please

Let them be little, cause they’re only that way for a while.
Give them hope, give them praise, give them love, everyday.
Let em cry, let em giggle, let them sleep in the middle.
Oh just let them be little.

So innocent, a precious soul, you turn around.
Its time to let them go.

So let them be little, cause they’re only that way for a while.
Give them hope, give them praise, give them love, every day.
Let em cry, let em giggle, let them sleep in the middle.
Oh, just let them be little.

I am co-founder and CEO of the John Adams Academies, an institution that is perhaps the most unique charter school system in America today. The Academies’ curriculum is designed to give its students an American Classical Leadership Education®. This is an education that pursues truth, beauty and goodness and turns its scholars outward in search of those whom they can serve in becoming servant leaders. This website is dedicated to sharing the concepts of an American Classical Leadership Education with its readers so that more citizens can benefit from the truth, virtue and wisdom of the past. The thoughts and opinions I share on this page are my personal views.
