    There is, I think, no more powerful image of humanity—and love, and devotion—than to see an adult holding a child’s hand, and leading that child to safety.

    This touched me so deeply! Parents want so badly to hold their children’s hand until they are safe. But where is the promised land?

    I have a granddaughter who can be stubborn and independent.
    So I ask her to hold MY hand and help ME.
    Works like a charm.
