Overheard by my wife in a restaurant where we were eating a late breakfast Thurday morning. A little girl, maybe 8 or 9 years old, asks her mother how she knows Barack Obama is not just saying things to get himself elected, and how she knows he’ll keep all his promises if he is elected.

Bravo, little girl. You’ll do just fine in life.

One thought on “Overheard”

  1. I'm not sure I echo your sentiment.

    I may applaud the little girl for thinking critically and having a questioning mind.

    I just can't help but wonder how distrusting this little girl may grow up to be. And that I can't applaud.

    Kids seem to learn not to trust at much younger ages.

    How I love the sweet trusting innocence of a baby…
