May 2016 Editor's Notes

Is there anything more precious that watching two three-year-old friends walking around the room doing everything together? They don’t care if they’re a different gender, race, or socio-economic level. They just know they enjoy each other’s company, and that they’re “Better Together.” It’s a joy to watch.
