The interesting thing about having medium sized kids (which is what I call Naomi) is chatting with her about serious things. Today it was banned books and censorship. And while she still does distill some things into very simple, very black and white "That's bad" sentiments, to have a child who is aware, thoughtful and trying to make change is fantastic. I don't want her to ever be afraid to use her voice. At 4 and a half she wrote to the President of the US. At 5 and a half she wrote to the mayor of our city about a specific problem-lack of Hanukkah decorations in our town. Her heart is amazing and makes me cry just thinking about her. May she always be able to speak up as strongly as she does now.
