"Take away the plastic, the film, the artificial and give a small boy a stick to dig in the dirt, to whack the water at the pond's edge---and you have given him happiness. Show him deer tracks and the handprints of a raccoon, and you give him curiosity. Boost him up to the lowest limb of a tree and he can take the next one with vision. Show a small boy something other than cartoons, sing him songs that are not commercials,, teach him gentlenesss with small animals and other children, and you have given him a life laced with love and kindness..."Joyce Sequichie Hifler, Cherokee Feast of Days

Very touching, this.
