    The wonderful little ones, are our nation’s future. May their parents, and family and relatives…and their teachers too… raise them in the best possible way: with healthy nutrition; with a love and respect for their fellow-man; with a sense of self and also of knowing God’s Love. Each one has a chance- a duty even- to make some contribution to the well-being of their country….to receive…and also to serve.

    May they each be richly blessed in every way! I just love children…and thank the BT folks for this lovely li’l cheer-up as we open the bowling wid de New Ball!!
