Hi Shaun,

I'm sure you will, and I'm already sure you are. Did you know young
girls, as young as 6 years old will take care of their little
brothers and sisters while their parents work here among the Maya?
Although they get their lumps and bumps like everyone else, they
grow up to be very honest and genteel people, who honor their mothers
and fathers always. Its not taught. They just care. They are always
walking hand in hand. When you get to work among them, or people
like them, maybe it will be a learning experience for you too, and,
in the end, you will learn what they know that can be a help to
others. Have fun. They do.

And, I love your quote:
