“Mommy, why are we alive if we’re just going to die anyway?” Ella was deep in thought after church on Sunday.
“I mean, really. Why do we even go to school to learn all this stuff if we're just going to die one day? It’s really all just meaningless!” Ella, by the way, is ten years old.
“And why do we try to change the world when we’re all just going to die?”
It was like she was reciting straight from Ecclesiastes. Only one decade old, and she already thinks like King Solomon. We’ve always known she was an old soul, but seriously. This was almost too old.
What do you tell a kid like that?
