Lil’T had a panic attack so I rode on the school bus with her to school. There was a rousing debate over whether this was a free country or not with some of the bigger kids. The school goes up to grade 4, so they still weren’t very big. I didn’t hear much of their conversation because my kids were singing “wheels on the bus” in my ear, but I was still impressed.
“This is a free country. If it wasn’t we’d be all dead cuz they’d make us all go fight in wars.”
“No, it isn’t a free country. When we grow up we have to get jobs and do what our employer tells us to. How is that free?”
