Lexie Speaks on Martin Luther King Jr

My daughter learned about Martin Luther King Jr. in her first grade class this week.  Here’s her statement.

Doctor Luther King didn’t like the way people were.  Some people couldn’t drink out of the same fountains as white people, and some black kids couldn’t even go to the same schools as white people, so he changed all that, because everyone is created equal.  And then he got shot.

Not bad for a kid who spends most of her time making silly faces.

(when she’s not making real, honestly beautiful faces!)

  1. First grade? That IS a rather good summary!
