    "I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."- MLK

      "Not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character." ~Martin Luther King Jr. Today is MLK Jr. day, today we get to see as a country how far we have come and how far we have yet to go. Dr. Martin Luther King has inspired so many generations and me personally so I say, "Happy MLK day."

      I am Anglo and my daughters are half-Anglo/half-Hispanic. When they were little we had many discussions about skin color and race and ancestry. I even bought Crayolas's box of skin tone crayons to try to find the right color for their skin tone and mine. This is perfect! All I needed was flesh tone.

      couldn't agree more about the quote but as an illustrator, these crayons are more like dream comes true. "Not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character." by George Takei

      "Not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character." by George Takei: Thanks to @Scott Dudgeon #George_Takei This might be my new favorite quote/representation/photo! We are all like crayons, made of the same things, just different shades of flesh!

      This is an interesting post! Sometimes simple things like crayons can have a lot of meaning. When you color a picture, is someone really "black" or "white"? Or should they have a range of flesh tones to choose from?

      "Not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character." by George Takei. I won a speech contest based on the concept of the crayola "flesh" crayon of the 1960s. Oh how far we've come!

      YES! I love these. There are so many times when I think about the little things I've always taken for granted; finding a crayon to match my skin color, finding a band-aid that isn't peach. These are the little injustices that make me realize that though we've come a long way, we still have so much further to go.

    I always thought about this when reading The Little Mermaid and hated it how Ariel gave up her voice for a man's approval! Always stick to your real self.

    This is Amazing! A 21-week-old unborn baby named Samuel Alexander Armas was operated on in his mother’s womb by surgeon Joseph Bruner. As Dr. Bruner completed the surgery on Samuel, the little guy reached his tiny, but fully developed hand through the incision and firmly grasped the surgeon’s finger as if thanking the doctor for the gift of life. Dr. Bruner said when his finger was grasped, it was the most emotional moment of his life, and for an instant during the procedure he was just frozen, totally immobile. The baby was diagnosed with spina bifida and would not survive if removed from his mother’s womb. Little Samuel’s mother, Julie Armas, is an obstetrics nurse in Atlanta. She knew of Dr. Bruner’s remarkable surgical procedure. Practicing at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, he performs these special operations while the baby is still in the womb. During the procedure, the doctor removes the uterus via C-section and makes a small incision to operate on the baby. Little Samuel’s mother said they “wept for days” when they saw the picture. She said, “The photo reminds us pregnancy isn’t about disability or an illness, it’s about a little person” Samuel was born in perfect health, the operation 100% successful. What a beautiful story!

    Love this. The power of positivity !

    When we accept ourselves without judgement, its easier to accept others... look in the mirror and love yourself before pointing that finger at another.
