    When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy said,

    'Nothing, I just helped him cry.

    Your attempt to highjack a beautiful thread with your ugly comments will hopefully not succeed.

    What planet are you on? This kind of junk mail has been circulating the globe for over 10 years. I was a the IT Manager of a firm and I had to find ways to stop this garbage from clogging the email server.
    If you really need some kids to tell you what love is, being gay is not your biggest problem.

    I must admit I'm quite cynical about e-mails such as this that have no source or reference material. All to often this kind of stuff is contrived by adults because of the emotional manipulation one gains by attributing these comments to children. I for one will not give in to being manipulated into 'oohs' and 'ahhs' just because a child allegedly said these things. I see this all the time also, and have to roll my eyes before devoting precious neurons to meaningful pursuits - like checking the Delete box off and sending this drivel into the virtual trash heap.

    Gag me with a spoon.

    The only one I enjoyed was Billy's "You just know that your name is safe in their mouth." Reminds me a little of Hafiz, feeling safe and warm and wrapped up in the Beloved.
