Almost simultaneously, two young doctors came out to give their report of the surjgery and the condition of their respective patients. I thought to myself how young these two doctors looked. Were they old enough to treat a loved one into their care for surgery? Then I thought, they were probably more knowledgeable and better Informed about the latest medical practices and methods than their older colleagues. At church on Sunday I gentleman who was to bring the morning message. Again I thought to myself, can this young upstkrt preach? Why. he isn't even married . . . he is jiist a kid; It . ••' .

The choir sang their special music and the young man started up to preach. As he began to preach the Word, he warmed my heart, tanned myjiide and stirred my soul .

They are sensitive to pain, loss, criticism, love, attention and many of the simple things we overlook. One boy was accused of looking like Timothy McVeigh. He was so upset that he tried to change his hair. He^said "I don't want to look like him." Taking time to help children and listen to them teaches us when we think we are here to teach them.
