Thanks so much for begining the new year with this wonderful program highlighting Robert Coles. I first knew of him when I read about his surprising friendship with the then small girl, Ruby Bridges, who helped to integrate the schools in New Orleans. more. Now I have two grandchildren and I want to spend more time with this remarkable man and the sincere and open children he and his wife came to know through their interviews. Hearing his voice again began to connect me once more with the voices of these children who speak to all of us in their honesty ,wonder and thoughts of God. Time in the new year can be well spent through listening to this program and its conversations with people like Robert Coles. Thanks for making it one of the best programs on NPR.
