Happy Friday Morning Moment
Entirely personal, and of no real interest to anyone, but my son just gave me a writing-father’s moment of joy. His fourth grade homework was to enumerate ten rights that everyone in his classroom should enjoy.
I helped, but for the last one I made an extra effort to hang back. He despaired, just a little — after all, aren’t nine rights enough?
So I asked him, “what do you think everyone in your class should have the right to do.”
“Read books,” he answered.
That’s my boy!
