It's really sad that #Clarence ended on @cartoonnetwork.

I can't think of a more beautiful, needed, unifying, & powerful example for children to be exposed to in these times.

It's simple hero never tried to be anything other than himself & encouragd the same from all.

The only thing that mattered to Clarence was happiness, his own & every other person's. His unrelenting joy & kindness, even to those not being kind to him was moving & inspiring.

It was a celebration of childhood, family, and friendship. The model of boyhood of provided was one that today's children need to see.

In #Clarence's world everyone is amazing, equality is assumed, failure is ok, and standing up for what is right matters.
