This just popped into my head today as I was talking with a class that is writing a paper about school violence.

My father once said:

”If  everyone in the world were me, a little, three-year-old girl could wander out of her front door at three o’clock in the morning, out into a big city, and she’d get picked up and find herself safely at home before she knew it . But everyone in the world is not me. “

Amen, Dad. Amen.

Seems so basic, doesn't it?

time when it was best not to be obviously Italian -- center),

jazz organist
