But we have flowers…

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
Matthew 19:14

(flowers for sale along Grafton St. Dublin, Ireland / Julie Cook / 2015)

I don’t know if you have had an opportunity to see the video clip of the conversation between young Brandon Le and his father, Angel Le.
The Le’s are french citizens living in Paris. Angel had brought young Brandon, a preschooler, out to see first hand the growing memorial of flowers and candles…in hopes that young Brandon could better process the city’s recent tragic events.
The conversation is both heartwarming and encouraging—
May we all remember that we have flowers…..

    The only weapon more powerful than hate and violence is love! Our Lord taught us that by walking that path to show us the way to live and to love. Let us do the same! Blessings and prayers for all as your Thanksgiving Day approaches – may we all live gratefully.

    Amazing and powerful! I am in tears.

  5. Oh my goodnes, what a sweet, sweet and touching video. It made me cry. The boy’s father is so loving and did such a good job of trying to help his son, and the boy was so quick to grasp and hang onto the hope his dad offered him. It was, as Nico said, powerful and amazing! Thanks for sharing. Thank goodness, we have flowers and that they give us hope in the face of horrific loss. Love and hugs, N 🙂 ❤

    • I knew you’d love it if you hadn’t already seen it—little Brandon is absolutely adorable and so articulate with much wisdom for such a little one —thank you for reblogging—hugs to Texas
