    What does 'Love' mean?
    A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds, 'What does 'love' mean?'

    And the final one -- Author and lecturer Leo Buscaglia once talked about a con test he was asked to judge.

    The purpose of the con test was to find the most caring child.

    The winner was a four year old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife.

    Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman's yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there.

    When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbour, the little boy said,
    'Nothing, I just helped him cry'

    This one gets my vote:

    'Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day'
    Mary Ann - age 4

    Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints on our hearts. And we are never, ever the same.-- Anonymous

    Old People, like me, may not be around to witness the destruction of our Nation. The rest of you may not survive the collapse. We all have the sworn duty to prevent it.

    The light of hope burns brighter than the fires of doom.

    What the heck happens to us as we get older? Kids are WAY smarter than adults. We get so jaded with life's experiences that we fail to think like children anymore...to stop and enjoy the little things. *sigh*

    The views, opinions, stupid off the cuff comments, mouthy, obnoxious, thoughtless, etc etc etc are not always or even some of the time the belief of my department, so bugger off!
