“The natural inclination for most of us will be to withdraw our children, to take them away from the world, and to keep them for ourselves. I think that’s a totally understandable reaction as we consider all the different things out there that are pressing in on the young hearts and minds we’re seeking to care for. But I think that eventually will cause difficulties. Because unlike an actual tidal wave, the pressure that’s overwhelming our children will not dissipate.” — Melanie Lacy
