What children can teach us.

I was watching the news on one of the three broadcast networks yesterday.

They had a story about a class of third-grade students. One of them had lost everything in a fire at his house several days ago.

These little ones organized a drive to make sure that this little boy had presents for Christmas. When asked why they did it, these seven-and eight-year olds said, “because he is our classmate and our friend. We hug each other when we are sad, and we hug each other when we are happy. We care about each other and help each other whenever we can. That’s what we’re supposed to do.”

How about that, folks? These little kids hit the nail on the head. Hopefully they will continue to think this way as they grow up.

Remember, no one is born with hatred or bigotry. It has to be learned, and the people kids learn this from are the ones who will be held accountable one day.
