Kendall’s world full of wonder

Her name is Kendall, and she is an amazing 14 year old girl.  If there was ever a physical embodiment of Tinkerbell, it’s this kid.  Even though she is knee-deep in her angst riddled teenaged years, you seldom see that in her.  Her friendships are without judgment.  Her caring is without compromise.  She has a hard line view of what is right and wrong, and will verbalize it when she sees fit.  There are nice words, and mean words.  For instance, nothing in Kendall World is allowed to be “stupid”.  You are not allowed morons, idiots, or fools in her land.  To her, everyone and everything has a potential to be better.  Things might not be right, but for her, they are still on their path to it, and therefore, deserve a smile for their effort.
