"Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing." 1 Thessalonians 5:11
There is a juvenile correctional facility in Gainesville, Texas, for youthful felony offenders. All states have such facilities and Texas has more than one.

"Yes," he replied, "I have a boy who is six and a girl who is five."
I asked, "At Christmas time, do they ever give you a present?"
