Emme doesn't know about what happened in Beirut earlier this week. She doesn't know about what happened in Paris yesterday. But still, I decided to opt for a teaching moment. "Some bad people did things that were very hurtful this week, and a lot of people are sad. Some people are speaking about the bad guys with words of hate..."
Emme interrupted me, "But we don't do that, do we mama?" She went on to say that she thinks that it's important to love everyone, even bad guys, because otherwise they won't learn how to be kind.
Wise words from a child.
