Julia and What Today Means To Her

Today being Martin Luther Day, I am reminded of a couple of examples from last year when Julia took the stories of Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks to heart.

When discussing Dr. Martin Luther King at school, one of the parent volunteers asked Julia what she thought Dr. King's dream was. Julia pondered the question for a minute and answered, "I bet his dream was that he was white...then he never would have gotten shot."

Later that same day, she got on the bus and told the driver (who had the bus set up so kindergarten students sat up front)  that because of Dr. King, Rosa Parks and Mrs. S (Julia's teacher last year), she could sit wherever she wanted on the bus.

Just a couple more examples of "Julia Logic."
