A Resolution to Honor Dr. Samuel B. McKinney
Little Jordan has a problem. He loves to be with his friends at school, but his skin color and hair texture is different from theirs. Jordan thinks God doesn't love him because he looks different. He soon prays for a change in his appearance so he can look just like his friends. With the help of his parents and teacher, Jordan comes to understand that he has been beautifully and wonderfully made by God's hands. He discovers that sometimes his friends may even want to look like him. Jordan learns that he is loved because of the kindness on the inside and not his appearance on the outside.
