All that we are we will pass on to our children - our loves, our hopes, our dreams, our character. Therefore, let your thoughts be planted in rich soil and let your actions stand tall in a child's eye. Just as fruit does not fall far from the tree, children do not stray far from their heroes. ~Unknown
