Our five year old grandson is in Kindergarten. This week he is learning about Martin Luther King and the fact that he will have a day off of school next Monday on MLK Day. Last night my daughter asked him if he knew who Martin Luther King is. He said sure Mommy. He is the man who let the black children sit on the bus next to the white children so they didn't have to sit by themselves in the back. Then he followed up with this - I think I like that man mommy I bet he would let us bring our dogs on the bus so they could ride with us and go to school.

How sweet. :)

Jake and Brandon have been learning about him too with the upcoming holiday. Jake can't understand why people were treated differently then so he's been asking questions. It's hard to explain when it's something you don't understand yourself. They have friends of all colors, and they are as color-blind as can be. People are just people to them. I hope that continues. :)
