Hi Ranjeet, thanks for the response. Actually, I used the word “Hispanic” when recounting the details of the phone I received. I also used the words “nine year old” and “female” in the description. I do hope you read that as well. She is the victim, not the suspect.
For me, I believe it’s true. I think we learn through hands on experience and should have that opportunity. Having a PhD, I am grateful for this education but it didn’t prepare me for the things I would see and the interacts I have but it did give me the skills I needed to figure out the why.
There’s always so much going on in the backgrounds of our lives that I think most people don’t notice what’s going on. I can see that now that I’m out of it.
Thanks for reading, Brandon and for bringing this awareness to me.
I read this on Thursday when you published it and just read it again. It makes me wish I could be a kid again, even if just for a day. We grow up and become aware of limitations and restrictions. We are not born knowing them.
I’m not sure if you utilize your local library but there is a book, Grow All You Can Eat in Three Square Feet, written by Chauney Dunford that is a magnificent resource for tiny gardening projects for families. I worship my copy as if it’s the gardening bible.
Also, please feel free to share photos! Ogling other people’s gardens is a huge favorite past time of mine.
I recently had a friend say to me, “why does this shit keep happening to me?” My immediate reflex response was, “if it didn’t, life would get boring and stagnate, don’t you think?”
