A Show of Hands: Heal

When my daughter was three, she went through a ‘Band-Aid’ phase.  Every day she would complain of a new boo-boo.  Some were tiny scratches or paper cuts.  Most were not visible to the human eye, and one was even a freckle.  Still, she always insisted on a Band-Aid.  She was somehow comforted by the magical healing effects of a colorful bandage.  While the phase didn’t last long, it serves as a reminder, even today, that our hands can heal—whether the hurt is imagined or real.
