Never doubt a kid's ability to get to the heart of the matter.
During a religion lesson where the little girls and I were talking about God's goodness and love in creating us, I pose this sentence, asking Anna to finish it:
"To go to heaven we must be _____."
The answer of course is good. But Anna, a bit more pragmatic, looks up at me and says:
I laughed, because of course, she is correct. I told her yes, but we need to be good too.
"Oh, yes" she says, "Good and dead."
