1046 – "A baby knows nothing of hatred, intolerance, racism, sexism, bigotry, indoctrination, homophobia, and prejudice. A baby doesn't yet understand things like love, compassion, integrity, tolerance, human decency, and truth. For the first, most formative years of my life, all they will know is what you teach me. Please choose wisely."
