Jumping In Puddles Posted July 23, 2008 Share Posted July 23, 2008 This morning, I read a story about Martin Luther King Jr. to my kids and my son said "If I was a bus driver, I would sit everyone in a pattern" Me: "ummmmmm, ok? well.... I think people could sit where ever they want, don't you?" he says "I think you're right that would be better." Then he says after sitting silently for a moment "The world wouldn't be very colorful if everyone was the same color" to which my DD replied "especially if no one was pink because pink is soooooooooooooooooooooo beautiful!" to which my DS replies, "oh yeah... or like daddy, he has different color skin than us but we still love him because everyone is the same on the inside, same bones and muscles right?" my reply: "well... actually, Daddy has the same color skin as us, he's white" DS: laughing, shaking his head :lol:: "mommy, dad has dark skin, I have tan skin and you have white skin" Then to end this, ahem, interesting conversation, he says " I bet MLK is walking around now so proud of himself" I said, well actually a very bad person shot and killed him. DS's face turned bright red and he said "then when I am 9 and am allowed to have a gun, I'll shoot that bad guy!" ...and that ends our funny conversation because now we have to have the whole gun/no shooting - even bad guys talk.
