    Shall we receive the good at the hand of God, and not receive the bad?
    Bible: Hebrew, Job 2:10.


    The very best reason parents are so special . . . is because we are the holders of a priceless gift, a gift we received from countless generations we never knew, a gift that only we now possess and only we can give to our children. That unique gift, of course, is the gift of ourselves. Whatever we can do to give that gift, and to help others receive it, is worth the challenge of all our human endeavor.
    Fred Rogers (20th century)
