Meet Jamal and Amber from Arizona.
The one word that best describes Jamal and Amber's life today is "Adventure." The reason they chose this word is because every day they are experiencing something new.
If Jamal and Amber could change one thing in the world, they would "Want PEACE and for every person to be equal and for everyone to be kind to one another." The way they would go about making this change is to do unto others as they would have them do unto them.
One year from today, Jamal and Amber would like to move to a bigger home, purchase a second car so they'll have transportation for their children to play sports.
If Jamal and Amber's life were a movie, it would be a drama about how they have had to start over in their lives as they build a better life for their family. It would be about them experience a lot of firsts everyday with God at the center of everything they do. The title of their movie would be called "Journey Of Us."
I met Jamal and Amber on the beach tonight as their young son was trying to take a picture of them I offered to take their photo and was captivated by their outgoing and thankful personalities.
Jamal was very passionate about changing the world through peace and unity. We talked about a peace plan and how he/we could go about making this happen. The solution to this global problem is complex yet could be so simple.
As I was leaving, Jamal and Amber's 3 year old daughter said she likes to take pictures so I knelt down to place my big DSLR camera in her hands, but instead she walked in front of me and posed like she was a professional model. It was amazing for a couple reasons; #1 Her definition of taking pictures was the exact opposite of my definition, #2 She had the most perfect pose with her head titled just slightly and a beautiful smile.
I loved watching Jamal and Amber's little girl take center stage with confidence and innocence. There is something special about seeing children express themselves in a way that reflects the love and care they experience from their parents.
Continue to love your children with all your hearts Jamal and Amber, this is the first step in changing the world one child at a time.
