"Today like millions of other Americans, I went to work.
I didn't design a beautiful skyscraper,
I didn't write a proposal to save an endangered species,
and I didn't drive a bus or fly a plane,
or write a crucial bill that would someday become a law.
However, I did spend time with some very important people.
I read a story to a future attorney,
I sang the alphabet song with a future Supreme Court Justice.
I ate Lunch with a future pastor, and patted the back of a future engineer until he fell asleep.
I taught a future policeman how to tie his shoes,
and introduced a future astronaut to the color red.
Tomorrow, who knows whom I'll meet, but one thing is for sure.....
They will be very IMPORTANT
for they are our precious children,
and the hope of our very future."
