Age Twelve

I wrote this when I was 12 years old, freshly after reading the "7 Habits" for the first time, which my dad had enthusiastically recommended to me.  It's poignant and amazing to read again now, when I'm nearly three times that age, and recognize the eternal self that I was and still am.  This statement touches on deep hopes and desires that I still have, to know and be known.  

I'm a little hesitant to share this on the blog because it feels so personal, but it's been pressing steadily on me to post it ever since I ran across it in the attic a few months ago.  So, here it sees the light of day again after two more decades of an incredible life that I've been privileged to love, learn and overcome in.
