"I would like to make the people who work with infants the most honorable and best paid--not overpaid, because it shouldn't be done by people who do it only for the money. Educaring should be done by very capable people who also make a decent living. That's what I would wish for the future.
"We can make it happen. It won't happen in weeks or even in months. The politicians will not make it happen. We have to do it. We have to present ourselves like professional people who do a most important job, which we do. Slowly, not in my time but in yours, this may have results. Keep fighting for it."
