  6. 6. The Prophet Children Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself. They come through you but not from you, And though they are with you, yet they belong not to you. You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams. -kahlil gibran

  60. 60. About the Cover Photo This photo was taken in Bhagmalpur, India on November 3, 2008. I was trying to connect to the Internet using a cell phone. This was the first time a computer from Bhagmalpur had connected to the Internet...ever. I had to go to the roof of the house, where I could get a good cell phone signal, but we had no electricity, so I had to do all this in the light of a kerosene lantern. 5.1 billion of the world's population is still unconnected. Not every one is http://www.flickr.com/photos/olpc/3011271194/ so lucky to have 24/7 Internet access. -- Sameer Verma
