Last week my brother and I drive my niece, my brother'sdaughter to her friends house for a sleepover. We passed a group of people picketing outside a building. On their picket signs there were morbid and depressing pictures of dead babies. My niece asked us why there were pictures of babies on the signs. We told her because those people are fighting against women's rights. My niece asked me why the fetus' in the pictures looked so pale and sad. Because they died duh. My niece asked me how come they died? I told her their mother decided it was not a good time for a baby so she made a choice to not bring it into this world,To which my niece says (in her exact words) then why did the woman chose to get pregnant instead of using contraception such as birth control or a condom which has a high chance of preventing pregnancy? My response "sometimes it's an accident or unplanned, sometimes the mommy wasn't given a choice and she was hurt and sometimes a mommy just doesn't care. There are times when mommy having a baby could hurt the mommy or the baby is sick and won't live. My niece asked me a question that gave me pause: so the mommies that don't care just throw their babies away? Does that mean we babies (she pointed at my dd and ds, her younger brothers as herself) are just like garbage to mommies and daddies? I told her "sometimes". To which she says then "eh, what can you do?

A week later my brother gets a call from her daughters principal requesting that both she and I come to a meeting. The principal explained to us that the class was doing a project called "will never" it's basically means the kids write about things that 'will never' happen. This is what my niece wrote:

When things seem difficult miserable
Life is turning away from you
Intimidated and worn out you remain
In darkness at a corner you examine
Watching the sky as it disappears
Reminding the lost beloved ones
How beautiful and caring they were
Vanishing without saying goodbye
Shortening your long life span
And leaving you destitute and lonely

she also wrote it in french, german and latin.. i mean she is six years old. what would you expect?
 
anyways, the principal didnt like the poem and called my brother AND me into a meeting. (of course i was called in, i have occasional contact with the child) he said i would be a terrible mother, i yelled, he yelled and my niece went off to read some Shakespeare stories
