Out of the Mouths of Babes

My daughter came home from school yesterday with her latest work of art, a finger painted picture of a man with dark hair, a dark mustache (like Poppy's), and the words "Martin Luther King Jr." written at the bottom of the page (by her teacher, not O).

Our exchange:

Me: Look at this picture!

O: Smiling broadly while swaying her hips (a new thing)

Me: Who is this?

O: Martin Lou King

Me: Oh really! And who is he? Do you know?

O: Yes.

Me: Okay? Who?

O: He dreamed we should all be friends.

In a nutshell....exactly.
