Our Children

“A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove… but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child.”
– Forest E. Witcraft – Teacher, Scholar

The children sing with Deb at the side of the road when our car broke down.
