Mark sends in this quote:

It was on my fifth birthday that Papa put his hand on my shoulder and said, ‘Remember, my son, if you ever need a helping hand, you’ll find one at the end of your arm.’
Sam Levenson (1911 – 1980)

I remember one other story that Levenson tells and I tell it to new parents when I’m greeted by that little pink being with the laughing face and the closed fists.

‘I believe that each newborn child arrives on earth with a message to deliver to mankind. Clenched in his or her little fist is some particle of yet unrevealed truth, some missing clue, which may solve the enigma of man’s destiny. He has a limited amount of time to fulfill his mission and he will never get a second chance- nor will we. She may be our last hope. She must be treated as sacred.”

The parents usually just look down at the little guy or gal and beam. Try it. It will make their day, and yours
