This season is, no matter your belief system, a time for reflection, for family, and for rededication. As you go about your celebrations large and small, public and private, we’d like to share the following – The Guardian’s Oath. It is created and inspired by William Joyce’s ambitious children’s book series that ranges from picture books to more complex YA narratives.
The Guardian’s Oath
I will watch over the children of Earth,
To guide them safely from the ways of harm,
To keep happy their hearts, brave their souls and rosy their cheeks,
To guard with my life their hopes, and their dreams,
For they are all that I have, all that I am,
And all that I will ever be.
Merry Christmas to each and every one of you.
