Your smallish, inquisitive young fellow sounds an awful lot like Simon in Golding's Lord of the Flies: truth seeking and somehow potential victim-fodder. The kind a teacher would do well to keep one eye on during recess, yet sees clearly and deeply into evil: "Pig's head on a stick."

God bless him.

Thanks for sharing that. As a homeschooling dad, I have seen the same innocence in my children that I want to protect as long as I can. On a side note, and although you didn't mention the child's ethnicity, I attended a seminar on Latin American culture last year, and a point that the presenter made very clear is that they have a different personal space than Americans do. Our personal space is an arm length typically, but Latin Americans have it at about an elbow length. This is often misconstrued by Americans as being either secretive or too personal, and they can sometimes use that to tease us.

In 1973, abortion was thrust upon the headlines of every small-town paper in America.

I was twelve years old, and I had to ask.

And I had exactly the same reaction as your young friend.

My baby sister had grown in my mommy's tummy, and she had come out just two years before. How could anyone even think about killing a baby?
