QUOTE: The front page was filled with such doings; a little
boy had been beaten by a schoolteacher; two houses had
burned, one with its family in it; a little girl was
suffering from an incurable disease. Somehow these child
tragedies seems always to concern children the same age as
your own. If you have children, you are always vulnerable.
If you are a parent, you are the parent of all children.
