For five years I have spent almost every single day with you. Now I have to send you out in the world and pray that I have taught you enough about how to hold on to yourself in the face of a world that will try to cut you down to size. Please God don't let his spirit be broken. Let him continue to become more of who he was meant to be, not less. Let him learn to find his way with grace and kindness in this world. It is not just the first day of kindergarten, it is the first day of the rest of his life.
