“We are guilty of many errors and many faults, but our worst crime is abandoning the children, neglecting the fountain 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 “Tomorrow”.His name is “Today”(Gabriela Mistral Noble Prize-winner- poet from Chile).
