A Conversation With My Six Year Old

🇺🇸
  1. Him: "Mom, what does the American flag represent?"
  2. I immediately start thinking about what the flag is supposed to represent and how I fear that we are not living up to our hopes when the flag was made.
  3. "It represents bravery, freedom, and justice. These are American values."
  4. I stop myself from over answering.
  5. Jack thinks about this for a minute.
  6. I wonder what's rolling around in his head. What deep, patriotic thoughts is this amazing child pondering?
  7. "If I had a flag to represent me, it would be for video games."
  8. Cool.
