A 6year-old's version of current political events: this afternoon he asked if the "marching parade" (protesters) was going to go down the street past his school, and if we could be in the parade with them. I explained it wasn't a fun parade and that it might not be a safe place for young kids. When I asked what he thought they were "marching" for, he said they were "fighting for the statue of Liberty." (Liberty and freedom, perhaps?)

Sometimes I have no idea how much these kids understand, and other times I am blown away by their perspective. Sometimes I don't know what to say about our broken world. Other days I have lots of things to say but no time to write it down.
