Robert Fulghum wrote in the KANSAS CITY TIMES, "Most of what I really need to know about how to live, and what to do, and how to be, I learned in kindergarten. Wisdom was not at the top of the graduate school mountain, but there in the sandbox at nursery school.

"These are the things I learned: Share everything. Play fair. Don't hit people. Put things back where you found them. Clean up your own mess. Don't take things that aren't yours. Say you're sorry when you hurt somebody . . . When you go out into the world, watch for traffic, hold hands, and stick together. "

This writer has captured part of what Jesus meant when he said, "Unless you become like little children, you won't enter the kingdom of heaven." - Hugh Duncan
