Together We Are Strong

Our world is in trouble
Our way of life challenged
We the people are in the fight of our lives but we are STRONG
Together we can get through this COVID19 virus

In this surreal moment in time each one of us must Think and Reflect
We must pull together and help each other
We must put our differences aside and unite
No one is invincible to this disease

No matter where we come from, we are all in the same boat
We are at a fragile stage in our life
Rich, poor, old, young, this virus affects us all

If our world stands a chance for survival we must learn from our past
No one should stand alone
Everyone is important and should be cherished

To all the families who have lost a loved one, our heart aches for you
May God comfort and guide you

Wear your mask and gloves
Wash and disinfect your hands
Keep safe

Listen and observe the measures put in place so we can defeat this common enemy
Take the time to comfort and love each other
Re - Ignite the family bonds of unity and understanding
This is the time to heal old wounds and forgive each other

Respect all life, help each other and together we can survive
To all those who have lost a loved one, our hearts go out to you
For every tear that falls, it does not go unnoticed, for we cry for you as well

May God protect you all from Seen and Unseen Forces that wish you harm
From our Heart to Yours -

Thumb Buddies Values

More than ever children are in need of direction
Social Media is used more and more by young minds
The capacity to think on their own is being challenged

Children are born into a world full of controversy
They need to think for themselves
To have open minds 

Danger is a real concern in society
Children  are subjected to situations that their young minds find hard to comprehend
We need to arm our children with as much knowledge as we can to protect themselves
To teach them to identify danger to themselves or others

We must also teach our children to be respectful 
To be kind and thoughtful
To not sit in judgement of others 

We as parents need to guide our children
To teach them good values
To be responsible for their own actions
To be honest and just

Values that the Thumb Buddies embody
Join Shaker, Cookie and Mr. & Mrs. Oopsie 
They invite you to go on a journey with them
Discover their world and learn about their mission
