Wow. I wonder how many of these conversations should be taking place but instead, get buried in the minds of little kids. So sad. I love your descriptions.

This made me cry. What a wise grama. This was a deep story. It was written simply, but with much emotion. Thank you.

Thoughtful and well paced. A scene that is full of sentiment and emotion.The caring of the listener to the questioning boy cannot be denied; nor to the insights he knows his answers might bring.
Tender and well written. You are a gifted writer.
Full of heart wrenching emotion. Sadly, this scenario weighs heavily on the hearts of small children all around us. Very well written!

A beautiful and sadly realistic story. I could taste his anguish right along with Grandma. Excellent writing.

Such a sad tale that is repeated too often. My mom has had to impart such wisdom to her grandchildren in a similiar situation. The flow of this piece was very good
