  • A child is a person who is going to carry on
    what you have started. He is going to sit where
    you are sitting, and, when you are gone, attend
    to those things which you think are most
    important. You can create all the policies you
    please, but how they are carried out depends on
    him.

50
He will assume control of your cities, states,
and nations. He is going to move in and take
over your churches, schools, universities and
corporations... the fate of humanity is in his
hands.
