WASHINGTON -- Early Monday morning The Mall by the Lincoln Memorial is as quiet as dawn. The only signs of life are runners in knee braces and families of adolescent ducklings along the edge of the Reflecting Pool.There are few reminders of the event that brought a quarter-million folks to this site Saturday to pay the rare currency of attention to America's children. The only leftovers are some food wrappers and rows of portable toilets waiting to be removed.On the ground is one hand-painted yellow banner -- ''Stand for Children'' -- that bears the autographs of the kids who came to carry it. They too have come and gone.
