4.                  Reflections






We are guilty of many errors and faults,

But our worst crime is abandoning the children,

Neglecting the foundation of life,

Many of the things we need can wait,

The child cannot,

Right now is the time his bones are being formed,

His blood is being made,

And his senses are being developed,

To him we cannot answer


His name is TODAY…

Dare we answer “Tomorrow”?
