  • His Hand In Ours by Jan Davis

    The newborn baby reaches out and grasps her Mama’s hand. The preschoolers walk hand in hand to the playground. A young daughter grips her daddy’s hand as he walks her to class on her first day of school. A high schooler takes his friend’s hand in a darkened movie theatre.

He put them in high places, on tables and bookshelves well out of harm's way—so he thought. He did not expect the 11 feet…
