Earlier, at Volunteer Park, I heard the voices of children, engaged in play. When I heard one child say dot dot dot, my last doubt faded away. Then I recalled my favorite passage from the book of Matthew:
18:1 At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?
18:2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,
18:3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. (Source)
And then I wept for joy.
