Some Kind of Magic

   

 “Every great magic trick consists of three parts or acts. The first part is called ‘The Pledge’. The magician shows you something ordinary: a deck of cards, a bird or a man. He shows you this object. Perhaps he asks you to inspect it to see if it is indeed real, unaltered, normal. But of course… it probably isn’t. The second act is called ‘The Turn’. The magician takes the ordinary something and makes it do something extraordinary. Now you’re looking for the secret… but you won’t find it, because of course you’re not really looking. You don’t really want to know. You want to be fooled. But you wouldn’t clap yet. Because making something disappear isn’t enough; you have to bring it back. That’s why every magic trick has a third act, the hardest part, the part we call ‘The Prestige’.”

Michael Caine, “The Prestige” 2006

Think of all that trash. The things people were throwing away – SO MUCH STUFF they couldn’t give it away, not among the affluent demographic background of their area. WE watched it transformed into resources for single parents trying to get to that graduation finish line. 

Trash transformed into a CHANCE!!!! 

If that is not magic… I don’t know what is. That’s an experience WE want others like us to share, because once you lose it all… you need a little magic.

It is logically impossible for single-parents to match the quality and standard of life of their married counterparts. Its not because of laziness or other character flaws. Single parents can’t be two people. Period. And therefore they can not provide the same quality and standard of life. I’d go so far as to say:…

It would take some kind of magic for that to happen. 

Single-parents are some of the strongest people you will ever meet. The fact that THESE people are considered the NEEDY ones is ironic. The only thing most single parents need is OPPORTUNITY.
