"If you judge people, you have no time to love them. Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier. Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies…There are no great things, only small things with great love…If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other." -Mother Theresa

love upon each and every one of them so that they can grow up having a kinder and pleasant view of the world." And even in their tender years here, these kids are subtly taught, not by preachment but by example, to care for and love each other.
