And a Child Shall Lead Them
This morning I was one of three wise guys to present a short seasonal talk at the Skidaway Island Kiwanis Club.

“A Little Child Shall Lead Them”
This is the heroic and true story of children coming of age in Terezin, the "Jewish city" established by the Nazis near Prague as a way station before the death camps. In the face of unspeakable horror, these children use their determination and creativity to build lives filled with hope and beauty -- playing, studying, making art, and writing an underground newspaper -- all at the peril of being executed. Their actual poems and stories are woven into a fast-paced drama, evoking the universality of children caught in the insanity of war.

Or the creatures, with their thick fur, their shy and wordless gaze.
