reasons i love my school #1,895

the children have real-world experiences i'll never possibly have.

this morning at my friday morning book club for past students plus others who just started to show up, we had a very short conversation about what war does to a country. two girls from afghanistan shared their experiences, talking about it in the way some kids share "last year i went to the zoo". i could only related with "i read that", or, "i studied that in college".
