“If there was no evil in the world, millions of things would have never happened. I hate it when you think the day is going perfect and when you get home you look at the newspaper and somebody killed somebody. It seems that everyday something goes wrong. It’s probably impossible to have a perfect day. Hopefully someday we will.” – Me as a fourth grader.
My mom was going through some old papers she saved and recently read this to me. The line “it’s probably impossible to have a perfect day” is heavy for a little kid. I wasn’t referring to life in my own little kid sphere but the outside world. It’s a shame even as a fourth grader I knew how flawed the world is, but refreshing I had hope that someday it may improve.
