Diamonds or Children – which are more important? By Mrs. Dorothy Barron

Diamonds or Children; which are more important and most important to a society?

                                                         Let us juxtapose the two:

Highly valued
Expensive to care for
Insurance to none
Highly valued by society
High to no value by society
Highly care for
High to no care
Safeguarded and protected
Affluent – dilapidation - homeless
“A girl’s best friend”
Brings wealth primarily to owner
Creates/provides wealth to a society
Placed in the best environment
Placed in safe  to perilous environments
Hard stones
Pliable human beings
Can exist for centuries
Life expectancy of less than 100 years
Comes in various colors, shapes & sizes
Born in various colors, shapes & sizes

 Children are the most important and precious resource to a society. If we are wise, we realize such, now; if not, but live long enough we will realize such, then.
