I run a daycare for grade school children. I continue to hear stories from my children they know little about their parents.

I do my best to encourage them to continue learning more. --iluvcookies, via email

I added and addendum when my children hear to follow their dreams. There are going to a moment in time something is going to change your dream.

Not fake fairy tales. --Ken Wilson, Elmont, NY
